"Blokes" Visit London 

by Scott Kirk 
and Ken Kuehn 

Over the semester break, Dr. 
Philip Billings led a group of 15 
students, faculty members, ad- 
ministrators and friends across 
the Atlantic to London, England. 

Joining Billings in the excur- 
sion were students Lore-Lee 
Bruwelheide, Scott Kirk, Libby 
Kost, Ken Kuehn, Jeff Lesher, 
Laura Mehlman and Tara 
Thomas, as well as Dr. Elizabeth 
Geffen, Dr. and Mrs. Howard 
Applegate, Charlotte Shuey, 
Shirley Smith, Ella Gross and her 
son Jared. 

What follows is a day-by-day 
account of their journeys in the 
U.K. All opinions are strictly the 
authors' viewpoints and should 
not be regarded too seriously. 

Saturday, December 28, '85: 
Our group leaves JFK Interna- 
tional Airport at 9 p.m. and lands 
in Heathrow International at 8:00 
a.m. Sunday morning (London 
time is 5 hours later than Eastern 
Standard). All of us nap to get 
over our jetlag. A few of us learn 
quickly how to use "The Tube," 
London's answer to the subway. 
In the evening, we get a taste of 
pub life (and a cold pint of lager) 
and then explore Picadilly Circus, 
a center of entertainment. 

Monday, December 30: (Hey! 
What happened to Sunday?!) The 
group departs for Canterbury and 
Dover, two places only an 
English major could fully ap- 
preciate. In Canterbury, we tour 
the Canterbury Cathedral (What 
did you expect, Westminster 
Abbey? That comes later. . .). The 
Cl ty is made up of winding cob- 
blestone streets leading to pubs, 
s hops and tourist traps (many of 
these were frequented by us). 
After a hasty departure, we're off 
to the White Cliffs of Dover, 
Dover Castle and Dover Beach. 
Dover Castle, a medieval for- 

tress, stands high on a cliff, 
overlooking the English Channel 
and the town of Dover. The tiny 
beach's shoreline is hugged by 
the White Cliffs and is a good 
place to grab a few photos of the 

Tuesday, December 31: We 
walk from our hotel (The Royal 
National) and head to the British 
Museum. The Museum's collec- 
tion includes the Rosetta Stone, 
which was the key to translating 
ancient hieroglyphics. The eve- 
ning's entertainment is The Nut- 
cracker, performed by the Lon- 
don Festival Ballet. The group 
rings in the New Year (5 hours 
ahead of the U.S.) with cham- 
pagne and a rousing chorus of 
"Auld Lang Syne," while three 
adventurous students brave the 
madness of crowds celebrating a 
different way in Trafalgar Square 
(vaguely equivalent to New 
York's Times Square). 

Wednesday, January 1, 1986: 
Ever try to do anything after the 
hangovers on New Year's Day? 
London merchants don't — 
everything is closed on this 
second-most "blessed" holiday. 
Everything except St. Paul's 
Cathedral, where we glimpse a 
panorama of London from the 
dome (Those of you who know 
little of St. Paul's might 
remember that Prince Charles 
and Lady Diana's wedding took 
place there a few years ago.). In 
the afternoon, a few of us see 
Godspell, starring Davy Jones of 
"The Monkees" fame. 

Thursday, January 2: Ok, 
folks, now we see Westminster 
Abbey, plus Big Ben, the Houses 
of Parliament and Buckingham 
Palace (We missed the changing 
of the guard that day, but many 
of our group got to see the 
ceremony later in the trip.). Our

Search for Coach Begins 

by Maria Montesano 

The football coach search 
committee began interviewing 
candidates last week for the job 
opening as LVC's head football 
coach, according to Dean of 
Students and search committee 
chairman George Marquette. 

With the resignation of 
Director of Athletics Lou Sorren- 
tino as head football coach last 
semester, LVC decided to change 
the job description of the coach 
to include full recruiting through 
LVC's Admissions Office, accor- 
ding to President Arthur Peter- 
son. Marquette said this will not 
only include recruitment of 
athletes but of other students as 

Marquette listed the following 
five requirements as important 
for the job: 

•successful coaching experience, 
preferably at the college level 

•intentions to represent the school 
in an outstanding fashion 

•interest in the academic life of 
the football players 

•sincere beliefs in Division Three 
Athletics (This includes no 
special treatment for athletes and 
due process plus proof of need 
for aid) 

The committee released these 

requirements to the public in 

newspapers and trade magazines. 

Marquette added that due to a 

word-of-mouth "network," the 

committee received applications 
from as far away as Indiana, 
Florida and Texas. 

By the end of the process, Mar- 
quette and the committee will in- 
terview at least eight applicants 
for the job. Marquette said he is 
"pleased with the overall quality 
of the applicants' ' ; and if the first 
two interviews are any sign of 
what is to come, the committee 
will have a difficult time selecting 
a new coach. 

The committee hopes to have 
its recommendation to the presi- 
dent by February 15, if not 
before, with immediate appoint- 
ment. Immediate appointment is 
important to enable the coach to

Alcohol Policy 

Every so often the Board of Trustees sets up a committee to 
examine the alcohol policy and recommend changes, if any. However, 
this has been happening on a regular basis in the past few years, and 
the word is that this year we are closer than ever to having a new 
alcohol policy, possibly for the fall of 1986. 

What's up before the Board right now is a proposal that would allow 
the use of alcohol for students 21 or older in their rooms only. If the 
Board passes this, it would be a step forward for the college. I realize 
that there are students who say that they chose to attend LVC because 
of the current alcohol policy, but after a while one begins to change 
one's mind. And not especially because of parties and such, but the 
little things that add up. It would have been nice to have had a couple 
beers during the Super Bowl last Sunday. It would be nice to have 
a bottle of wine in the room to have when friends come over, maybe 
even a little blackberry brandy for these cold winter nights. These 
aren't huge parties; they're small examples of things that add up to 
a lot over the years for those of us who are over 2 1 and go by the 
current alcohol policy (however few of us there are). 

One of the reasons people oppose a change in the alcohol policy 
is because they feel wild parties and rampant alcoholism will result, 
but I don't think that's the case. Yes, there will be a few parties once 
the policy is changed, and undoubtedly, people are going to get drunk 
and raise hell. Some students will have problems, with alcoholism, 
but I doubt more than do now. That's to be expected. But this will 
not become the norm. The students of LVC have been waiting too 
long for a new alcohol policy to throw it out the window the first 
weekend. If the Board of Trustees does come through with a new 
policy, it will be on a very tentative basis, and the students of this 
college know this (Students: you do know this.). We all know that 
we're going to be watched very carefully, and we're not about to blow 

what might be our only shot. Naturally, incoming students won't 
arrive on campus with the same attitude, but upperclassmen have a 
real knack for setting the tone for the freshmen class (i.e., I'd hate 
to be the freshman that screws it up for the whole campus.). 

It's time for a change. Some of us would like to be able to drink 
in our own rooms, and others are sick of risking their official 
transcripts over a lousy beer. It's time, and we're ready for a new 
alcohol policy. In closing, I want to address two groups in the LVC 

First, the Board of Trustees and the administration: Give us room 
to screw up. Some kind of incident, be it a fight, damage to personal 
or college property, or underage drinking; something is bound to 
happen. Don't overreact. Give whatever sanction system you set up 
time to take an effect. Don't pull the plug on the whole thing just 
because a few people abused the privilege. Wait and see if the 
sanction system becomes an effective deterrent. If not, you'll know 
we're not ready. If so, you'll know that the policy you've given us 
is workable. It's probably going to take all of a semester to give this 
a fair try. 

Students: Now is the time to speak out. Let the Board of Trustees 
and the administration of this college know that you're ready to 
handle alcohol like adults. Write letters to 77?? Quad, members of 
the Board (especially members of the committee proposing the 
change), President Peterson, and anyone else that has a say in this. 
A petition or two couldn't hurt. Make it known that this is something 
important to you, and that you're ready to handle it sanely. Maybe 
even people signing a promise of compliance, or something that would 
indicate a show of faith on our part would help. Just don't do nothing. 
Make a new alcohol policy something you've earned, not just been 
handed. Then drink to it.

Historically, colleges have taught theory and students could not put 
that theory to practice until after graduation. 

Today, however, students have the opportunity to practice their 
theory before graduation through cooperative education 
programs... otherwise known as internships. 

Several departments on the LVC campus offer internships to their 
majors, but only three require students to take an internship as a degree 
requirement. These departments include Education, English/ 
Communications, and Social Service. 

As an English Communications/Management major, I am 
presently working on my third internship. 

My first was with Penn State Continuing Education in Hershey — 
I worked as a graphic designer in the communications field. Then, 
last summer I worked as an intern in the marketing department of 
the Hamilton Bank in Lancaster. 

Right there, I have worked in both my majors — communications 
and management — and from the experience, I have decided that I 

definitely want to stay in the communications field, //"they didn't do 
anything else, these two internships helped me decide what sort of 
job to look for after graduation. 

This semester I am working (with another LVC student) for the 
Hershey Pasta Group developing a company newsletter. More 
communications experience... it sure looks good on the resume! 

Internships are the real world. You work with professionals, dress 
like professionals and do what you will actually do after graduation. 
If you're lucky, you could even pick up a few extra dollars since some 
internships are paid... 

All in all, internships provide a chance to get ahead of those other 
nine applicants interviewing for the same job as you! Experience in 
your field of study never hurt. Besides, internships are fun! If you 
get the chance, I'd recommend working on at least one! 

Last week, President Peterson told me he had just finished writing 
a proposal for a government grant that may enable LVC to get a 
complete cooperative education program on the LVC campus. It's 
a great idea, but it would be a shame if the only reason students took 
advantage of internships was because they were required. 

The president's ideas could take a while. Don't wait for that 
requirement — ask your advisor today what internships are available 
in your field of study! They could only help you\

Dear Editor, 

I wish to express my heart-felt 
appreciation to the college com- 
munity (faculty, administration, 
staff, students, and alumni) for 
the many expressions of sym- 
pathy, by cards, words, and 
various memorial gifts, at the 
great loss of my dear wife, Ellen, 
on October 26.

For those of you who think that 
what goes on in government 
doesn't really affect you, I have 
a bit of enlightenment for you. Do 
you realize that the state Senate 
has passed and the House is cur- 
rently considering a mandatory 
seatbelt law that would, as in at 
least 10 other states, make you 
wear your seatbelt, whether you 
want to or not? The penalty in 
states like New York and New 
Jersey is a stiff fine. 

Now / wear my seatbelt. Not 
to be self-righteous or anything, 
but I've made it my habit to wear 
seatbelts when I'm in the front 
seat of a car. It's a good habit to 
get into, but I'm not here to 
preach to you the gospel accor- 
ding to seatbelts. Whether or not 
they actually save lives, accor- 
ding to some people, is debatable. 
Studies have provided evidence in 
both directions, that they save 
lives and that it's better to be 
thrown from the car in the event 
of an accident. Again, I'm not 
here to debate that. I have taken 
to believing that belts probably 
are a smart thing to wear, and that 
is why I wear them. 

The question is, especially if 
you don't wear them, do you 
want to be told that you have to? 
Is it the business of the state 
Assembly to say you have to? 

On the one hand, it is generally 
held that government's main pur- 
pose is to protect people. A man- 
datory seatbelt law will protect 
you from injury in an accident, 
and if you're not wearing your 
belt, you'll be fined. If the 
government can pass other laws 
to protect you from yourself, like 
controllable substance laws, for 
example, then they should make 
seatbelts mandatory. 

On the other hand, though, do 
you think the government has the 
right to invade your life as you go 
to work in the morning inside 
your own car? If they can do this, 
next they'll try to dictate 
everything you can or can't do. 
This, of course, is an exaggera- 
tion, but it presses the point, 
doesn't it? A lot of people feel 
very strongly that they won't 
wear their belts, and they don't 
want anyone to tell them that they 
have to. The government should- 
n't go so far as to invade the 
private sphere of your own car, 
and unlike the case of controlled 
substances, your wearing or not 
wearing a seatbelt is endangering 
only yourself. I happen to wear 
my belt, but I have reservations 
about whether they should tell me

Phil Billings, Professor of English, signs copies of Porches, a book of poems and drawings, 
which depict the elderly in Annville. Billings and artist Dan Massad, who drew the faces of 
the people speaking in Billings ' poetry, discussed their work recently in an Honors class.

I have to. 

What then do we do if we 
believe that seatbelts save lives 
and that people should therefore 
wear them? Psychology would 
probably suggest positive rein- 
forcement, as opposed to 
negative. Current legislation 
provides this negative reinforce- 
ment where it really hurts, your 
wallet. Suppose this positive rein- 
forcement would help in the same 
sensitive area? By this I mean, 
provide financial incentive to 
wear the belts. Insurance com- 
panies are currently working to 
provide this incentive by 
awarding more coverage to peo- 
ple if they were wearing belts in 
an accident. They are figuring 
that it is worth it because injuries 
are likely to be less if people wear 
seatbelts, and as a result have 
smaller or no medical bills and 
thus, claims on their policies. 
This spells greater profit for 
them. Now General Motors has 
begun a life belt insurance policy 
on its new cars to provide incen- 
tive. If you were to be killed 
while wearing your seatbelt they 
will pay a big sum to your estate. 

This seems to be the solution to 
the problem. Positive reinforce- 
ment by private enterprise, not 
negative reinforcement by the 

So the next time you get in 
your car, remember how much 
government doesn't really affect 
you, and if you feel strongly, as 
always, do something about it!

My Ellen had demonstrated 
rare courage and determination in 
her difficult but successful strug- 
gle against cancer in 1982-1983 
when the outlook was extremely 
doubtful. We both had the en- 
couragement and the support of 
the LVC community on that oc- 
casion. Always a fighter, Ellen 
did not have the opportunity to 

battle the return of disease this 

Ellen and I owe a great deal to 
Lebanon Valley, for it was 
through our participating in 
student teaching in the 1941 
summer session, she from Juniata 
College and I from the Valley, 
that we met and became com- 
mitted to each other. Though not 
as actively involved in campus 
events as some wives, Ellen was 
proud of my association as 
teacher and administrator, 
followed the development of the 
college, and came to love LVC at 
least as much as she loved 
Juniata, as my sweetheart of 44 
years and as my wife of 42. 

God bless Lebanon Valley

After reading it, you really do 
know the people of Annville, But 
frankly, Billings might want to 
try writing prose — Porches 
shows that he would be good at it. 

In short, Porches deserves a

it could have been better.

higher than ever."

Lou Sorrentino Calls It Quits 
After 30 Years Of Coaching 

by Christina Weber 

Not only will the football team 
be losing its seniors on the team, 
but head coach Lou Sorrentino 
has decided to resign. 

After thirty years of coaching 
Sorrentino has decided to step 
down from his position as head 
coach on his own accord. "It was 
not a decision made because of 
our season (0-10), and it wasn't 
something I was forced to do," 
said Sorrentino. 

With his job as director of 
athletics and his coaching posi- 
tion, things were becoming too 
much. Before his health became 
a major factor, Sorrentino said he 
decided to resign as head coach. 
"After thirty years you want to 
lighten your load a little. I've

been trying to carry too much 
between head football coach and 
athletic director." 

Sorrentino said that this past 
season almost kept him from 
handing in his resignation. 
"When you go and 10, that's 
not the way you want to step 
down," explained Sorrentino. 

Resigning as head football 
coach won't keep Sorrentino 
from seeing to it that the Flying 
Dutchmen become triumphant. 
Sorrentino said that he still wishes 
to help the team from his position 
as athletic director. 

Being a 1954 graduate of LVC, 
Sorrentino' s dedication to see the 
Valley win is only natural. While 
here at LVC, Sorrentino majored 
in English so he could go on to 
eventually teach and coach. 
Before going on to help others 
become better at the sport he 
loved, Sorrentino gave a try at 
pro ball and spent a training 
season with the Philadelphia 

In 1971, Sorrentino came back 
to his alma mater to coach after 

spending fifteen years coaching 
high school football. 

In thirty years of coaching Sor- 
rentino has seen many players 
come and go. "I don't think I've 
seen many changes in that you 
still have to block and run," Sor- 
rentino said. Sorrentino explain- 
ed that the changes have taken 
place in the players and coaches 
themselves. The players today 
move more quickly and strongly 
than thirty years ago, explained 
Sorrentino. Coaching, he said, 
has improved because the coaches 
are more knowledgable. 

Being able to help young peo- 
ple getting started in life has been 
the best reward, said Sorrentino. 
"Somewhere along the line you 
feel that you've helped these 
young people go out and succeed. 
I think that's the biggest reward 
in the whole thing." Sorrentino 
said that sometimes he might 
receive a thank-you note, or 
someone might remember some- 
thing he said a long time ago. To 
Sorrentino that's where the riches 
of his coaching career lie.

Reesor Notches 100th 
LVC Mat Win

Kalo brothers take a breather along Route 934 in Bellegrove, just a few miles from LVC and 
the end of their trek.

Gary Reesor won his 100th 
wrestling match at Scranton this 
past Saturday. Reesor is the 
first LVC wrestler to gain 100 

Rich Kichman will go for his 
100th victory Saturday, in a nome 
match against Muhlenberg. 

Reesor, a senior, has a four 
year record of 101-16-1 and a 
22-1 record so far this year. The 
one loss is against a three-time all 

Head coach, Jerry Petrofes, 

has nothing but praise for Reesor. 
"Nobody ever worked any 
harder than Gary," says Petrofes. 
Petrofes credits hard work and a 
dedication to training for Gary's 
success. Petrofes says, "He 
[Reesor] works out twice, 
sometimes three times a day, and 
he runs 5-10 miles a day." 

Reesor credits Petrofes with 
much of his success. "When I 
came here [LVC] I knew techni- 
que, but Jerry helped me with 
strategy. My first two years I was 
wild, now I look for the weak- 

nesses. . .and I wrestle differently 
for each opponent." 

Gary also points out that 
Petrofes has been more than a 
coach.. "I can talk to him about 
anything. He is the only coach I 
have had that talked to me about 
things other than wrestling." 

In addition to the 101 victories, 
Gary has won the LVC Invita- 
tional three times and has gone to 
Nationals all three years. Petrofes 
believes that Reesor and Kichman 
will both go to Nationals this 

The old LVC record for vic- 
tories was held by Larry Priester 
at 87 wins. 

Overall the team is 8-4 after 
suffering losses to Scranton, 
Moravian and Susquehanna this 
past Saturday. "The team is 
down," says Petrofes, "but I'm 
not upset when we lose to teams 
that are better than us." 

The team's lineup is strong 
according to Petrofes and Mike 
Rusen, Eric Kratzer, and Jeff 
Sitler are having strong years. 
"We are strong from 126 to 100 
and the kids are experienced."

On Saturday, January 18, 
11 members of Kalo, Kappa 
Lambda Sigma, campus social 
fraternity, walked 26 miles with 
two wheelchairs and a support 
van from the steps of the state 
Capitol in Harrisburg to the mid- 
dle of the social quad on campus 
to raise money for cerebral palsy. 
This is a condition that strikes in- 
fants at or before birth and results 
in lack of muscular coordination 
and speech difficulties. 

Over $1000 was raised for 
United Cerebral Palsy of 
Lebanon County. Pledges were 
sought from Lebanon County 
businesses, some people on cam- 
pus, and family, friends and 
businesses located at the homes of 
Kalo brothers. Good Samaritan 
Hospital of Lebanon donated the 
use of the wheelchairs and Food 
Service supplied the refresh- 
ments. Aside of the food service 
assistance, Joe Myers, event co- 
organizer states that they re- 
ceived no help from the school. 
However, he did point out that 
President Peterson helped out 

Further help was given by the 
police forces along the routes 22 
and 934 walkway. Each munici- 
pality provided an escort to insure 
safety and prevent accidents. 

As far as the impressions of the 
walk, Myers commented "Thank 

God it was warm that day" and 
he described everyone as "en- 
thused but our feet were pretty 
sore when we got back to cam- 
pus" for the picnic afterwards. 

As far as their motivation for 
the project, Myers said that Kalo 
felt they wanted to do it because 
"as a social frat, we wanted to do 
something worthwhile. There is 
a lot of prejudice on this campus 
against us and we wanted to do 
some service, too. We did our 
part, we did our share." 

Since the semester break, the 
LVC women's basketball team 
has won three of five games, in- 
cluding a record-setting 101-48 
rout of Johns Hopkins on Jan. 21 . 
The Valley now stands at seven 
and three. 

Steph Smith scored a career- 
high 35 points to help the women 
past the century mark for the first 
time in the school's history. 
Dicksie Boehler with 19 points, 
Theresa Leach with 14 and Pen- 
ny Hamilton with 1 1 supported 
Smith in the scoring feast. 

The Valley women started the 
semester with a 60-51 loss at

Myers said that they hope to 
present the check to United 
Cerebral Palsy this week. They 
will then use it to buy equipment 
to aid Cerebral Palsy victims.

Board Considers New Alcohol Policy 

by Scott Kirk 

Editor's Note: The Board of 
Trustees is currently considering 
a change in the alcohol policy. 
The following is the first in a 
series of articles on the proposed 
change, and how it might affect 
the LVC community. 

Rumor: The Board of Trustees 
is now considering changing the 
Alcohol Policy, allowing 
students 21 or over to drink on 

Response: True! According to 
George R. Marquette, Vice Presi- 
dent for Student Affairs, the 
Board is doing just that, with 
several considerations in mind. 
Provisions for the proposed 
policy, presented in a recommen- 
dation from the Committee on 
Extra-Curricular Activities and 
Student Affairs, are currently 
under research. Marquette 
assumes that the Board will ap- 
prove or disapprove the proposal 
before the start of the next school 

What "provisions" are under 

The Committee, which has 
been studying possible policy im- 
plementation, has put together a 
"package" of provisions which 
would allow the proposed policy 
change to meet legal and ethical 
standards. The largest and most 

expensive of these provisions 
would be security increases, 
which would include personnel 
and equipment additions. 

According to Marquette, 
escalating security needs would 
be a substantial addition to the 
budget and suggests that this 
might be one of the proposal's 
largest stumbling blocks. "The 
Board may approve or disapprove 
the proposal on budgetary reasons 
alone," Marquette commented. 
But he emphasized the need for 
the security provision. "Our ex- 
perience, and the experiences of 
other colleges that have im- 
plemented similar alcohol 
policies, tells us that we can't 
overlook that responsibility. The 
statement that "we don't need ex- 
tra security' is a foolish, head-in- 
the-sand position to take." 

Additional provisions would 
include an alcohol education 
program for the campus an an ap- 
propriate sanctions system. All of 
these provisions are what the 
Board of Trustees needs to ex- 
amine and approve or disapprove 
before coming to any final 

Exactly what does the pro- 
posed policy change say? 

Students 21 or more years of 
age would be allowed to drink 

alcoholic beverages on campus in 
their rooms only. Marquette 
noted that any other place of 
possession or consumption on 
campus would be a violation. 
Students under 2 1 , in accordance 
with state laws, would not be per- 
mitted alcohol and violators 
would be subject to the sanctions 

If approved by the Board, when 
would the proposed policy 
change become effective? 

According to Marquette, an 
approved change would become 
effective the semester following 
the date of the approval of the 
Board. This would theoretically 
occur after all necessary pro- 
visions had been secured. 
Would the proposed policy, if 
approved, be temporary or 

According to Marquette, the 
policy change would be on a trial 
basis, as the Board is in the posi- 
tion to reverse the process at any 
time "...if they felt it would not 
be a proper change. A high 
percentage of the Board members 
expect that if the policy is 
changed, a no-nonsense approach 
would be administered. They 
don't want any game-playing." 
He reemphasized the Board's 
right to an instant reversal as a

Is this the first time the Board 
of Trustees has considered 
changing the alcohol policy? 

No. But Dean Marquette noted 
that this is the first time in a long 
while that a committee recom- 
mendation for a change in the 
alcohol policy has reached the 
Board for consideration. 

Marquette explained that the 
most recent investigations into a 
policy change began in 1981 
when a group of students asked 
for Marquette's assistance in 
researching other area colleges' 
alcohol policies. After a series of 
visits to area campuses, including 
Albright, Dickinson, Elizabeth- 
town and Millersville, and discus- 
sions with students and staff at 
those schools, the group made a 
recommendation to the Baord to 
review LVC's existing alcohol 
policy. The matter was turned 
over to the Committee on Extra- 
Curricular Activities and Student 
Affairs for further investigation. 

After a few reorganizations of 
the Board of Trustees and the 
Committee with successive 
school years, and more research, 
the Committee debated and came 
up with a tie vote in Spring, 1984. 
Since the vote was tied, no 

recommendation could be made 
at the time to the Board. Re- 
organized again in October of the 
1984-85 school year, the Com- 
mittee voted again, this time to 
take a positive recommendation 
to the Board for consideration. 
That recommendation, made in 
May, 1985, is the basis for the 
proposal and provisions

sidered by the Board of Trustees. 
How are current LVC students

The Committee on Extra- 
Curricular Activities and Student 
Affairs includes three Student 
Trustees: Juniors Barb Feaster, 
Libby Kost and Glenn Bootay. 
These three have been selected to 
represent contemporary student 
concerns to the Board. In addi- 
tion, they have helped research

Panel Reports Progress 
In Dean Search 

by Krista Bensinger 

The search is on: The Dean 
Search Committee is currently in 
the interview stage of their 
process to find a new Dean of 
Faculty for LVC, said Dr. 
Donald Byrne, co-chairman of 
the committee. Dr. John Norton, 
our acting Dean of the Faculty, 
is stepping down on July 1 , 1986. 

The committee has received ap- 
plications from all over the 
United States, including Alaska, 
Wyoming, New Mexico, the 
South and the Midwest. "The ap- 
plications came from a fair 
sampling of states," said Byrne. 

All candidates must have "the 
terminal degree in their field," 
said Byrne. This is usually a doc- 
torate, although some fields do 
not necessarily require that. In 
addition, other qualifications in- 
clude: significant accomplish- 
ments in teaching and scholar- 
ship, proven administrative 
capability in a college, good in- 
terpersonal skills, and an 
understanding of the goals of a 
small, church-related, liberal arts 

The new Dean of Faculty will 
°e responsible for overseeing the 
academic program, formulating 
the academic budget, develop- 
ln g and maintaining a distinguish- 
ed faculty, and promoting effec- 
tlv e communication between 
faculty, students, and adminis- 

The committee used "con- 
ference calls" to narrow down 
tne list of possible candidates, 
said Byrne. They called the can- 
didates, using a phone with a 
s Peaker, the entire committee sat 
m and listened to the applicant. 
r °ey asked him such questions 
^ why he wants tQ be a ^ 

1 L VC; and what role he sees 
t0r a small church-related college 
ln society. 

From the 90 original ap- 
plicants, the committee has nar- 
rowed the list down to six or 
seven. Of these few, some are 
faculty members at other institu- 
tions, some are working in na- 
tional education organizations, 
and others are "sitting deans," 
deans at another institution, said 

The selected applicants will 
come to campus to be interview- 
ed some time this month, each on 
a different day. After the inter- 
view, the committe will narrow 
the candidates down to five. They 
will give President Arthur Peter- 
son a ranked list of their choices 
by early March, said Byrne. By 
this time, President Peterson will 
have met each candidate, and he 
will make the final selection. 

The committeee members are 
inviting students to take part in 
this selection process. Eight 
students showed up to meet the 
first candidate and ask questions. 
"The questions they asked were 
very good and it helped us to see 
how the candidate interacted with 
the students," said Byrne. The 
committee would like the students 
to have some input into the selec- 
tion of the dean. The Dean of the 
Faculty should be very important 
to the students, said Byrne, 
because this person directs all of 
the academic policies. 

Any students wishing to meet 
a candidate can do so on one of 
the following dates: February 14, 
17, or 18. All meetings will be 
held in Faust Lounge at 7:30 p.m. 

Co-chairmen of the committee 
are Byrne and Dean George Mar- 
quette. Members include: Dr. 
Robert Lau, Dr. Allan Heffner, 
Dr. James Broussard, Mr. 
William Hough, Dr. Susan 
Verhoek, and Dr. Brian Hearsey.

Win 200 

by Pete Johansson 

The LVC wrestling team beat 
Albright College on Wednesday, 
February 5, by a score of 48 to 
12. This win, one of many in an 
incredible season for the team, 
gave Coach Jerry Petrofes his 
200th coaching victory at 
Lebanon Valley College, a feat 
unapproached by any other 
athletics coach in the history of 
the college. 

This was one more event in a 
banner year for a team that has 
already seen Gary Reesor and 
Rich Kichman each score their 
100th career victories. 

"I have never been associated 
with losing wrestling," Petrofes 
said. He is quick to give credit for 
his accomplishment to his 
wrestlers. "These guys are great, 
just great," Petrofes said. 

Petrofes said that in his senior 
year at Kent State, his wrestling 
coach had won his 200th victory, 
and it was a day Petrofes would 
never forget. "In those days, we 
didn't wrestle as much, either. 
We might have had 45 meets in 
my four years there, and we've 
had 22 so far." 

What makes Petrofes' ac- 
complishment even more 
remarkable is the fact that in all 
the games Petrofes has coached, 
he had only started with a full 
line-up in one out of every five 

The 1963-64 season was the 
first for Petrofes at LVC. The 
previous season the wrestling 
team had finished up with an 0-9 
season. Within three years,

Valentine's Day 

On or about February 14th in either 269 or 270 A.D., something 
happened, although no one is really sure what or to whom. On that 
first Valentine's Day, St. Valentine (of whom there might have been 
three), a priest in Rome (and/or the Bishop of Interamna), was clubbed 
and beheaded in Rome (or Interamna, or both) under the persecution 
ordered by Claudius the Goth. A basilica was built in his honor in 
350, along with some catacombs that allegedly contain his (or their 
remains. This is all that we really know about St. Valentine, except 
that the apparent date of his martyrdom is celebrated on February 
14th, and that his name is occasionally invoked against epilepsy, 
plague, and fainting diseases. 

From the observance of a Christian martyr we get a holiday 
characterized by Cosmopolitan's annual "20 Questions: Am I in 
Love?" quiz and a national loss of income at the hands of the greeting 
card, chocolate, and floral industries. How one event spawned the 
other is probably something only Karl Marx could explain. Since he's 
not around, I did some scrounging around in the library, and this is 
what I was able to piece together: 

The ancient Romans celebrated a festival around this time of year 
known as Lupercalia, a festival of the Lycaean Pan (Pan was the Greek 
god of fields and herds, Faunus would have been the Roman 
equivalent). Boys and girls would get together on this day, and the 
girls would write their names on a piece of paper and put them into 
some sort of a receptacle. The boys would then pick the names out,, 
and boys and girls would be paired up for the year until the next Luper- 
calia. Exactly what this entailed isn't clear, but the early Church 
apparently assumed the worst, and decided that something must be 
done to make this a Christian holiday (It is amazing how many 
Christian holidays find their roots for the date of observance in pagan 
festivals). What they did was change the celebration so that instead 
of picking out a girl's name that one would hang out with for the year, 
one would pick out a saint's name that one would try to emulate for 
the year. Since Lupercalia occurred around the date of Valentine's 
martyrdom(s) the name was changed to St. Valentine's Day. Naturally 
this wasn't nearly as fun as Lupercalia, and the holiday soon fell by 
the wayside. 

A millenium hence, it was Geoffrey Chaucer, of all people, that 
unwittingly revived the holiday. Chaucer, for reasons known only 
to himself, picked February 14th as the day birds mated. Evidently 
readers took Chaucer seriously, and over the years, the holiday began 
to re-establish itself as a day for lovers. Add to this the fact that the 
Norman word "galantin," meaning "lover of women," was at the 
time very similar in pronunciation to "valentine," and you begin to 
see the holiday getting back on a Lupercalian track. 

In the United States, the holiday started to come into full swing 
after the Civil War. The Postal system and the greeting card com- 
panies made it possible for those too insecure to serve affectionate 
tokens in person to send cheap (1C) cards, perhaps anonymously, to 
young ladies they would never have the guts to confront. Since then 
little has changed, except that valentines are now also exchanged, in 
slightly different versions, by family members and cranky third 

It is appropriate that Valentine's Day should have such a confused 
and uncertain history, because love is confused and uncertain. Love 
has attained a mythical status in our society, something beautiful, 
fragile, tentative, and ethereal. It gives fools courage and stops the 
courageous dead in their tracks. It comes once in a lifetime. It makes 
us young. It ennervates. It incapacitates. It's bigger than both of us. 

Actually, there are a hundred reasons why people fall in love, some 
of them biological. Falling in love is easy. You look at someone, 
superimpose an ideal, and you're in love. The trick is in making love 
stay. What happens when the ideal shatters, when the real person in- 
sists on coming through? What happens when you look in your loved 
one's eyes and no longer see limpid pools, but something dark and 
malevolent, flawed and limited, or worse yet, nothing at all? 

It's easy to love someone when you're not looking at them too hard. 
When you open your eyes and realize that this person is not going 
to bear the responsibility for your happiness is when love really starts 
to come through. Love is loving someone not because of the person 
they are but despite the person they are. If you've hit that point, con- 
gratulations. If not, keep trying. You may never find it, but looking 
for it keeps life interesting. 

Unsung Heroes 

by Tracy Wenger 

Sports hasn't gotten much coverage this year in The Quad for 
various reasons, and many times the coverage has only reported the 
scores— which many times do not put LVC athletics in a favorable 
light. However, I discovered that there are some great things 
happening in LVC athletics, for both the varsity athletes as well as 
for those who just want to stay in shape. 

One of the biggest happenings is the 15-5 record of the wrestling 
team. If the team wins two on Saturday, it will break the LVC record 
of most wins in a season. Coach Jerry Petrofes tallied his 200th career 
win, while the team has broken almost every team and individual 
record that LVC has. 

Two of the biggest reasons for all these broken records are Rich 
Kichman and Gary Reesor. At 32-0, Kichman is a four-time winner 

of the LVC Invitational and a two-time Most Valuable Wrestler. 
Wrestling at 177 pounds, Kichman won the Mt. Union Invitational 
this year. Kichman was runner-up in the conference last year, losing 
to his opponent 7-6. Something to watch for this year is a conference 
title for Kichman: the opponent who beat him last year isn't back this 

Reesor boasts a record of 31-1. After winning the LVC Invitational, 
he lost in the finals of the Mt. Union Tournament to a wrestler from 
Michigan who just happens to be ranked third in the nation. Reesor

The old adage certainly holds 
true. There are two sure things in 
life: Death and Taxes. Since I'm 
a senior and will not be a full time 
student all year, I had to have 
federal tax deducted from my 
paycheck for the first time the 
other week. All I can say is 
"Ouch!" The percentage of my 
check taken from me was stagger- 
ing. My father's only comment 
was "wait until you get into my 
tax bracket!" 

My feeling was basically, 
"OK, so I'm paying federal tax. 
But what am I getting for it?" Of 
course there is national defense as 
I am always pushing in this col- 
umn. Other than that, I have to 
start thinking. For the average 
middle class person, aside of 
roads, meager student aid and the 
post office, which we are paying 
for anyway, am I really getting 
my money's worth? 

My answer to this has been 
NO. I have thought about it in- 
creasingly, and I have concluded 
that the present taxing system 
is absolutely a MORAL 

It is a moral outrage for me to 
have my government take away, 
indeed STEAL so much of my 
hard earned and rightfully my 
money. I'm not getting much in 
return, if anything. 

I'm just glad that I'm not yet in 
a high bracket, because they'd 
take more then. The current tax 
system is based on a principle 
called progressive taxing, which 
means the more you make, the 
higher percentage you pay. The 
highest rate is currently about 
50% of income. While most peo- 
ple in this bracket can get out of 
it through loopholes, tax shelters 
and the like, I simply cannot 
believe that people will sit by and 
let the government, in principle 
or otherwise, take 50% of your 
rightfully earned money. It baf- 
fles me even more to see people 
like Geraldine Ferraro and hus- 
band John Zaccaro pay this much 
in taxes, yet in Congress, she 
continually voted for such 
measures. This stage of the game 
brings in a little term called in- 
come redistribution. In economic 
terms, it's socialism. In laymen's 
terms, it's Robin Hood robbing, 
yes, stealing from the rich— and 
the middle class, and giving to the 

Progressive taxing stinks. Not 
only is it socialism, an anathema 
to the American system of fr ee 
enterprise, but it robs incentive- 
If you know that your investment 
is going to put you in such a tax 
bracket, then why make it if y° u

Thermograph 'retires' — This thermograph, a temperature-charting device 
that has seen 20 years of service in a campus weather station and is no 
longer accurate, can be retired and replaced, thanks to a $16.5 million 
program of grants to institutions of higher education funded by the State 
General Assembly. State Sen. David J. Brightbill (R-Lebanon), left, and 
Lebanon Valley College President Arthur L. Peterson take a final look 
at the old machine, which is symbolic of the need for new and replace- 
ment equipment at colleges and universities across Pennsylvania. Sen. 
Brightbill was a chief sponsor of the legislation which created the grant 
program. Lebanon Valley received a grant through the program.

Smith is closing in on her 1000th as well for the Lady Dutchmen. 

John Hibshman set a new LVC indoor track record, running the 
800m run in 1:57.8. He also ran a 4:04 1500m run— not a record- 
but definitely worth noting. Cindy Sladek set two women's indoor 
records, in the 1500m (5:05.8) and in the 3000m (11:12.6). 

For those of us who just want to keep in shape, it's good to know 
that $6,000 worth of Physical Education money and state grants went 
into the LVC weight room this year, making it one of the most well- 
equipped in the conference. 

The room is very well equipped with both free weights and univer- 
sal machines. In addition, the state grant money allowed for the 
addition of a new Leg Extension Machine and a new Leg Curl 
machine. The weight room also now has solid dumbells in five- 
pound increments up to 70 pounds as well as a Power Leg Machine 
and a decline bench. 

If you haven't been over to see the improvements, you should go 
look and try them out. A high percentage of LVC students and some 
faculty are using the room's resources— both male and female. If you'd 
like to get on a weight program or learn to lift, you can contact Coach 
Kent Reed or anyone in the Physical Education Department. 

For spectators, the men's basketball team will be playing F&M on 
Saturday at 8:00 P.M. in Lynch, and the annual "Hot Dog Frank" 
award will be given. It was a good time last year, so be sure to be 
th ere this year. 

Well, that's about a 60-second review of some positive things in 
athletics for LVC to be proud of. I hope the trend keeps going with 
both outstanding individuals and good team efforts as well as im- 
provements for the general student body. 

I know good things are going on in other departments and areas 
of LVC. I'd like to know about them. I'd like to let the whole cam- 
P u s know about them, so let the staff of The Quad know. It's easy 
to complain, but it's a lot better feeling to discover and report the 
§ood things. 

Momma" Montesano's 
Area Restaurant Guide 

by Maria Montesano 

Tired of eating in the dining 
hall? And ordering out for pizza 
and subs? Well, I thought you 
might enjoy if I took some time 
to name some really good 
restaurants in the area for you to 
try out. The prices vary from the 
inexpensive to the very expen- 
sive. The numbers in parentheses 
following the restaurant names 
indicate the normal price range of 
most entrees. I am making these 
choices on the basis of living in 
this area for the past 15 and a half 
years. . .so please note that this is 
purely subjective. 
Hallmann's ($2-$5): If you are 
looking for really good home- 
made food at an inexpensive 
price, this is the place to go. 
Located on Route 422 East in 
Palmyra, many a dinner has been 
eaten in this diner-like 
restaurant. . .but I warn you to be 
willing to wait in line... because 
this is the spot of the town. 
Schwalm's ($2-$5): This is not 
my particular choice, but I must 
include this spot, located on 
Route 422 in Cleona. I think I'm 
the only person who doesn't love 
this place as much as Hallmann's 
...for this is homemade food at 
inexpensive prices. If you want 
atmosphere, I recommend 
Hallmann's, but if you just want 
good food, you can try this. 

Funck's Family Restaurant 

($2-$5): If I were rating these 
choices with stars (five being the 
highest), Funck's would get one 
star (*) for its service and food 
from 6:00 a.m. to 1 :00 a.m. and 
four stars (****)from 1:00 
a.m. to 6:00 a.m. This is the 
perfect place to go at 4:00 a.m. 
for an early breakfast after a late 
night. You can get anything from 
a bagel with cream cheese and 
your choice of Smucker's jellies, 
to an all-out, eat-every thing-in- 
sight breakfast. And the coffeepot 
is bottomless! 

Kenny's ($4-$9): This place is 
never full, and I don't understand 
why! The food is tremendous for 
the price, and the atmosphere is 
quiet. Kenny's is located on 
Route 422 West in Palmyra — 
just catty-corner from Funck's. 
Tony's Mining Company 
($8-$20): Located in Cornwall, 
Tony's is quite an elegant ex- 
perience in dining. Set in a wood- 
like and mining atmosphere, you 
will enjoy a rather filling but 
worth-it type meal. This is 
definitely a good place to bring 
your date. 

Alfred's Victorian ($8-$20): 
This is the ultimate in feeling like 
royalty. This old, converted 
house located somewhere in Mid- 
dletown (Don't ask me for direc- 

tions.. you'd definitely be lost!) 
serves all kinds of meals that will 
just fill you with ecstacy!! From 
its Fettucine Alfredo to its Cher- 
ries Jubillee, you are served like 
a king! The atmosphere is all in 
red, with swede-like wallpaper — 
but all in very good taste. This is 
the perfect place to go to celebrate 
somebody special's birthday. 
Lucy's Cafe ($4-$ 12): We're 
always told, save the best for last 
— and that is exactly what I have 
done. This is my very favorite in 
the area. Lucy's, located on 
Route 422 in Hershey, is the best 
Italian food you can get in the 
area, next to my mother's. Along 
with a small bar, Lucy's offers 
such Italian delights as real, 
homemade spaghetti and sauce, 
cheese (not meat!!) ravioli, 
chicken broth with pastina, and 
best of all, basil in its salads!! I'm 
telling you, even without looking 
at the inexpensive prices, this is 
the best you can get in this area! ! 
The ultimate pleasure in dining! 
(Are you getting the point?) I 
must tell you, Lucy's does not 
seat a lot of people, it has the 
oddest hours in the area, and you 
cannot make reservations. You 
really have to play your cards 
right to get a seat... but the ride 
and wait are well worth it!! 
Bon appetit! 


Wig and Buckle Presents 
Arsenic and Old Lace

tims, the other tries to cover up 
the murders from his aunts' 
friends, the police. The Brewsters 
collect twelve bodies in their 
basement throughout the 

play. . .and, well the rest you will 
have to witness. 

"Arsenic and Old Lace"

beginning to end. 

Director Ross Hoffman said 
that "everyone is working really 
hard on the show," and that will 
be great! He also added that this 
is ' 'one of the best sets that LVC 
has had in a while," and that 
work on the set began before 
Christmas break. 

Along with Hoffman's direc- 
tion, Laura Pence is producing 
the show. The cast of characters 
includes Tina Bakowski as Abby 
Brewster, Kristi Cheyney as Mar- 
tha Brewster, Geoff Howson as 
Mortimer Brewster, Jennifer

Trostle as Officer O'Hara and 
Paul Valenti as Mr. Witherspoon. 

All shows are at 8:00 p.m. in 
the Little Theatre. Tickets are 
$4.00 each and Sunday night, 
February 16, is students ticket 
night. Also, on Saturday, 
February 15, a buffet dinner is 
available before the show.

LVC V-Day: 
Garber Debt 
Retired Early 

Lebanon Valley College has set 
aside Saturday, February 15th, as 
Victory Day in celebration of the 
retirement of a $5 million debt on 
its new Garber Science Center. 

Because of an unusually rapid 
payment of pledges and prudent 
fiscal management the College is 
actually retiring the bond issue 
used for the construction of the 
science complex two years ahead 
of schedule. 

Al Murry, President of 
Lebanon Valley National Bank 
which serves as trustee for the 
bond issue, noted: "Lebanon 
Valley College is to be commend- 
ed for its financial integrity in 
retiring the bonds two years 
before the maturity date." 

President Arthur L. Peterson 
commented, "Not only is the 
Garber Science Center bond be- 
ing retired two years early but the 
school's Endowment Fund is 
growing at a healthy rate in part 
because all current payments now 
being received on Garber Science 
Center pledges are being added to 
a Special Endowment Fund for 
the purpose of maintenance and 
operation of the Center and its 
state-of-the-art equipment." 

Looking forward to the future 
needs of the institution, the Col- 
lege Trustees have commission- 
ed a study to determine ways in 
which to increase substantially the 
general Endowment Fund used to 
support growing financial aid to 
students, professional develop- 
ment of faculty and staff and new 

The English Department will 
present a series of speakers, 
Leaders in Communications, dur- 
ing this semester. The speakers 
have developed successful careers 
in various aspects of communica- 
tions work and will talk about 
their own areas of communica- 
tions as well as how they 
achieved success in those areas. 

The first speaker will be Ann 
White, Co-owner of White, 
Good, and Co. advertising agen- 
cy in Mt. Gretna, Pennsylvania. 

White's schooling includes an 
associates degree from Centenary 
College for Women and a 
bachelor of arts degree in English 
from Rutgers University. She has 
worked for such companies as 
Johnson & Johnson, John Harris 
Co. (a food broker in Connec- 
ticut), Fonderen-Miller Advertis- 
ing and Kelly Advertising in such 
areas as marketing, sales, broad- 
cast production and account 

White has also written two non- 
fiction books for the adolescent 
market. Divorce, published by 
Franklin-Watts, is distributed to 
school libraries in America, 
Great Britain and Australia. 

In this time, White also took 
time out to have two children. 

In 1981, after leaving Kelly 
Advertising, she formed White 
and Co. advertising, and in only 
two months, Bob Good joined 
White to form White, Good, and 
Co. The agency's clients include 
such companies as the Wilm- 
ington Savings and Bond Socie- 
ty, the People's Bank, F&M 
Trust of Chambersburg, Plain 'n 
Fancy Kitchens and the James 
A. Weaver Co.

Colleges all across the nation 
are now being faced with a 
challenging problem of com- 
peting for a small number of high 
school graduates planning to con- 
tinue their education. This na- 
tional trend has been reflected by 
numerous studies which point out 
that in 1979 there were about 3 
million high school graduates 
compared to the 2.5 million in 
1986 and ending with a low of 2.3 
million in 1992. 

The northeastern region is 
predicted to be the hardest hit. 
The demographic scales show 
that in 1984 there were 660 thou- 
sand high school graduates. In 
1986 there is estimated to be 610 
thousand high school graduates. 
But, alarmingly, the regional 
trend is not expected to bottom 
out until 1994 with only 460 thou- 
sand high school graduates. 

This trend makes colleges, 
such as Lebanon Valley College, 
more and more active in 
recruiting students from a very 
competitive field. Lebanon 
Valley College has been affected 
by this trend and our enrollment 
counts reflect this downward 
curve of graduating high school 

At Lebanon Valley there were 
825 students enrolled in the 
1983-84 academic year. Of those 
full time students 690 of them 
were residents at a time when 
there were 796 beds available at 
the college. In the 1984-85 
academic year there were 795 
students enrolled with only 654 
residential students with 764 beds 
available (at this time the North 
College and the Knights of the 
Valley House were closed down). 

This academic year (1985-86) 
there are 759 students enrolled 
with a significant drop of 605 
residential students. Over a five 
year period (1981-1987) there is 
expected to be an over-all drop of 
eligible college students in the 
northeast region of 18%. 
Lebanon Valley College is ex- 
pected to experience a 14% 
decline of students entering the 

These statistics pose a chal- 
lenging problem to the admis- 
sions staff and to President Peter- 
son, who must compete with the 
local state universities. 

Private colleges such as 

consumer accounts in the finan- 
cial and food industries, and she 
has won several advertising 
awards including the Addy, the 
Effie and the Clio, for her work.

18, 1986.

Lebanon Valley are being faced 
with the challenge of competing 
for students with larger and often 
less expensive state universities. 
Universities such as Ship- 
pensburg and Millersville are 
becoming more appealing to high 
school graduates in a time of 
financial cutbacks. 

The current presidential ad- 
ministration has slashed student 
financial aid in order to pay for 
expensive military weapon 
systems making it more difficult 
for more expensive private col- 
leges to compete with large state 

President Peterson has made a 
strong effort to address this 
problem by allocating larger sums 
of money to the admissions office 
and developing a leadership ex- 
pansion program to attract more 
students without sacrificing 
academic standards. The admis- 
sions office, in conjunction with 
President Peterson, has expand- 
ed the financial aid program and 
included more presidential grants 
for the leadership program. This 
program is designed to improve 
the quality of students entering 
the college and to encourage 
those students planning to attend 
the state universities to consider 
Lebanon Valley College as an 

Greg Stanson, Dean of Admis- 
sions, asserts that the number of 
students already committed to the 
college as of now is comparable 
to the number of students last 
year. A significant factor is that 
the mean SAT score of the 
students already committed to the 
college has improved by 30 
points. This statistic does not in- 
clude the presidental scholarship 
candidates which would inflate 
this figure. 

The admissions office makes a 
strong effort to assert that they 
will not sacrifice quality for a 
larger number of students to fill 
dorm space. One important point 
that must be considered is that 
Pennsylvania has one of the 
lowest participation rates in the 
college. This means that few high 
school graduates actually plan to 
attend college. The college, in 
order to compensate for the 14% 
drop of entering students, will 
have to actively recruit from a 
pool of students who have not 
planned to attend any college.

Controversy Over 
College Center 
Gas Scare 

Chaplain John Smith commented recently on the relationship between the Methodist Church 
position on alcohol and a possible change in the college alcohol policy. p ^ oW ^ s ue Mamska 

Methodists No Bar 
To Alcohol Policy 

On Wednesday, January 29, 
cleaning staff member Delene 
Rothenberger discovered a gas 
leak between 11:00 p.m. and 
midnight in the College Center. 
According to Officer Terry 
Gingrich, Rothenberger told CCE 
Student Supervisor Denise 
Mastovich that when she punch- 
ed in on the time clock, she 
noticed a strong smell of gas in 
the kitchen. Mastovich, confer- 
ring with other CC employees 
Kevin Biddle, Kathy Kleponis 
and Jim Reilly, confirmed 
Rothenberger' s report. She then 
paged officer Gingrich, who had 
' been looking into a disturbance at 
the train tracks behind Funk- 
houser. Gingrich responded to the 
call in 2 minutes time, hurriedly 
making his way to the building. 

"I don't waste time on some- 
thing like that," Gingrich said. In 
the meantime, CCE Student 
Supervisor Biddle had evacuated 
all students, including snack shop 
patrons and the Rainbow Clown 
Troupe, who were performing 
for coffeehouse that night. 

As Gingrich began his search 
into the possibility of a gas leak, 
Mastovich and co-workers 
notified Cheryl Weichsel, Direc- 
tor of Student Activities, David 
Michaels, Director of Food and 
Conference Services, Samuel 
Zearfoss and William Rothermel 
Maintenance, and UGI Gas 

Although the building had been 
evacuated, Snack Shop em- 
ployees, the cleaning staff and 
the CCE Student Supervisors re- 
mained. One of the CCEs noted 
that she felt everyone should have 
left the building. "I don't think 
anybody took it seriously," she 

When questioned, Snack Shop 
employees said they had stayed 
because their supervisor told 
them to finish cleaning up. The 
cleaning staff commented that 
mey stayed because Gingrich felt 

it was unnecessary for them to 

According to Gingrich's in- 
vestigation, the probable cause of 
the leak was a stove burner that 
was not turned off. He explained 
that the burner was not lit, and 
was circulating gas back into the 
kitchen. Gingrich speculated that 
the burner may have been 
bumped, accidentally turning it 

Gingrich shut off two valves 
feeding into the stoves, and the 
main valve in the boiler room. 
This stopped the flow of gas into 
the building. All that remained to 
be done was a final safety check 
of the building. By midnight, the 
scene of the "Disaster That 
Never Was" had settled back in- 
to its routine. 

Michaels arrived just before 
Gingrich finished his final check 
and the two consulted. Michaels 
commented later that in his own 
investigation, a pilot light was out 

It was at this time that the 
rumor mill ground into action. 
According to several "first- 
hand" student reports, the 
building was within 15 minutes of 
exploding. This, it was believed, 
(theoretically) would have caus- 
ed the implosion of Vickroy Hall, 
Mary Green Hall and Lynch 
Memorial Gym. But Michaels 
reassured reporters that the cam- 
pus was never in any danger. 
' 'The type of gas we have is not 
a heavy gas. The type of ventila- 
tion system is large, so the gas 
dissipated rather than built up," 
Michaels commented. "It prob- 
ably wouldn't have ignited. It was 
just one of those things." 

Weichsel concurred: "I don't 
see it as a major emergency. It 
would have become one if 
something had gone wrong. 
You're not talking that major of 
a problem. My understanding 
was that there wasn't enough gas 
in the building to affect 
anybody," she said.

Author's Note: This is the second 
in a series of articles on the pro- 
posed alcohol policy change. 
While the series is partially in- 
tended to provide updates on 
legislation, it will also provide 
various perspectives on the 
alcohol issue for the LVC Com- 
munity to consider. This article 
considers what effect the Col- 
lege 's affiliation with the United 
Methodist Church might have on 
this proposal. 

Recap: The Board of Trustees 
is currently considering changing 
the alcohol policy to one that 
would allow students 2 1 or over 
to drink on campus in their own 
rooms. Under consideration are 
proposed security increases, an 
alcohol education program and an 
appropriate sanctions system. 
Vice President for Student Affairs 
George R. Marquette speculated 
that the Board will approve or 
disapprove the proposal before 
the start of the next academic 
year. According to the timetable 
Marquette suggested, if the policy 
change is approved, the change 
would theoretically go into effect 
first semester of the 1986-87 
school year, provided all 
necessary provisions would be 

Rumor: The reason LVC 
doesn't allow alcohol on campus 
is because the Methodists control 
the college. The Board of 

However, this has not 
prevented local colleges and 
universities that are Methodist- 
affiliated from instituting alcohol 
policies. According to Smith, 
Albright College in Reading, a 
United Methodist school, has a 
similar policy already in effect. 
"Albright doesn't try to control 
the behavior of those over 21," 
Smith commented. "There is no 
law set down (by the Methodists) 
that dictates you have to have this 
or that kind of alcohol policy. 

"In some sense the Methodists 
have been blamed too long for it 
(prohibiting alcohol)," he con- 
tinued. "If this is a church 
problem it's because it's a social 
problem. Society has a dilemma 
involving the use and abuse of 
alcohol that it hasn't resolved. 
Churches and colleges share in 
that dilemma," he said. 

Supporting Smith's thesis that 
the Methodists aren 't to blame is 
the fact that the chairman of the 
Committee on Extra-Curricular 
Activities and Student Affairs, 
Dr. Dennis Williams, submitted 
the recommendation to amend the 
alcohol policy. Why is that little 
tidbit so important to Smith's 
case? Simply because Williams is 
a United Methodist Church pastor 
in the Eastern Pennsylvania 

Try that on for size. And watch 
for more to follow. 
Trustees will never seriously con- 

sider "legalizing' alcohol on 
campus because the Methodist 
church is holding them back. 

This is a difficult statement to 
respond to, as it is both false and 
true simultaneously. 

Chaplain John Abernathy 
Smith reviewed in discussion that 
although the College's religious 
roots formerly were with the 
United Brethren Church, the Col- 
lege has been affiliated with two 
conferences of the United 
Methodist Church since 1968. 
These two conferences include 
the Eastern Pennsylvania Con- 
ference and the Central Penn- 
sylvania Conference. 

That affiliation undoubtedly in- 
fluences the College in many 
areas; one of these areas is the 
composition of the Board of 
Trustees. According to Smith, 
about one half of the Trustees are 
elected or nominated by the two 
conferences; each conference 
elects or nominates an equal 
number of candidates. So to a 
large extent, the two conferences 
do have a voice in the administra- 
tion of the college. 

The United Methodist Church 
holds long-standing support of 
doctrine that prescribes 
"...abstinence from alcohol as a 
faithful witness. . .(Book of 
Resolutions, UMC, 1984)." That 
is the "official" position of the 
church, according to Smith.

Second-Half Rally 
Falls Short At G-burg 

wl 1 on 


The women's basketball team 
suffered a disappointing loss last 
Saturday, losing to Gettysburg 
87-85 in overtime, in a Middle 
Atlantic Conference game. 

The Flying Dutchgals trailed 
by 19 points, 51-32, at the half. 
However, they staged an exciting 
comeback to send the game into 

an overtime session, in which 
they were outscored, 12-10. 

Dicksie Boehler led the women 
with 18 points. Jackie DeShong 
scored 16, Penny Hamilton had 
14, and Steph Smith and Ann 
Cessna added 12 points each. 
Both Boehler and Smith fouled 

Hostetler Erupts For 32 
As Men Fall To Albright 

The men's basketball team was 
defeated 105-79 in a non-league 
game against Albright last Satur- 
day. Albright, bringing its record 
to 6-16, had five men scoring 
double figures. 

A bright spot for LVC came in 
the form of Don Hostetler, who 
finished with a career-high 32 
points. Pat Zlogar added 17, and 
Jim Deer finished with 15 points. 
The men's team is now 4-17 on 
the season.

Valley Threesomes Sought 
For Regional Tourney 

Lebanon Valley men and 
women will get a chance to 
display their basketball skills 
before an NBA crowd at the 
Spectrum in Philadelphia. 

But first they'll have to pass a 
few preliminary tests. 

Intramural Director Jerry 
Petrofes has announced the first 
round of the Shick Super II Super 
Hoops Three Person Basketball 
Championships. Here's how it 

Any three students on the 
Valley campus can form a team 
to compete for the right to par- 
ticipate in the Delaware Valley 
regionals March 8 at Drexel. The 
competition has a male division 

and a female division. The Valley 
can send two teams in each divi- 
sion to the regionals. 

The top four teams at the 
Regionals will then participate in 
the finals at the Spectrum March 
14. Various prizes will be award- 
ed by the Shick Company. 

Petrofes asks that any team, 
male or female, sign up for the 
first round by February 18. He 
said the games will all be played 
over one weekend. Petrofes add- 
ed that any student of the college 
is eligible except those who have 
had previous varsity basketball 
experience .

Petrofes brought the LVC 
wrestlers to a winning season. 
Since then, Petrofes has brought 
his record at LVC to an im- 
pressive 203-161-5. 

Currently, the wrestling team is 
showing success, particulary in 
the persons of Gary Reesor and 
Rich Kichman. Together, they've 
been responsible for breaking 
most of the records in LVC's 
books. Petrofes' goal is to get 
these two to the Nationals and 
have them named Ail-American. 
Three wrestlers from LVC have 
made Ail-American. Gary 
Reesor, thus far, has made it 

Last Saturday, the wrestling 
team played in a quadrangle meet 
against Baptist Bible, Western 
Maryland, and Ursinus. The team 
beat Baptist Bible 42-16 and 
Western Maryland 28-15, but lost 
to Ursinus (the last college they 
played that day) 45-12. This 
brought the team's record up to 
15-5. This Saturday, LVC is 
hosting a triangular match against 
Haverford and Gettysburg. A win 
against one of the two schools 
would tie the 1973-74 record of 
16 wins in one season, and wins 
against both would break it. 

Any seniors who have 
not ordered a cap and 
gown or filled out an ap- 
plication for degree card 
need to do so immediate- 
ly. See Mr. Harnish in the 
College Store or the

know the government will take so 
much away? This may account 
for the sluggish economy of re- 
cent years. Just because I have in- 
centive and the drive to 
succeed— indeed, fulfill the 
American Dream, does not mean 
I should have to pay for some able 
bodied welfare recipient's food 

What do I propose? Tax 
Reform? Well, current proposals 

are still considered modified flat 
taxes. Indeed the Reagan plan still 
includes rates as high as 35%, 
and the Kemp-Kasten plan is 
25 % . This is still taking too much 
of what is rightfully yours. How 
about God? What does he re- 
quire? The Bible only states the 
need to tithe, to give 10% . If God 
only required 10%, should the 
government require more? It's 
time that the middle class stood 

up for its rights to a greater share 
of its earned income. I intend to 
be fighting this, and if you feel 
the same way, you should, too. 
Taxes are too high, and must be 
lowered. Those that pay should 
either get more from what they 
contribute, or not be forced to 
contribute as much. It's a simple 
issue of fairness, and once again, 
the middle class is getting the 
short end of the stick. It's time 
something was done.

Monos Named Coach; 
Sets Football Goals 

by Maria Montesano 

LVC President Dr. Arthur 
Peterson announced the appoint- 
ment of James P. Monos, Jr., as 
head football coach and admis- 
sions counselor, in a press con- 
ference on Thursday, February 
20, 1986. 

Monos comes to LVC from 
Shippensburg University where 
he was assistant football coach 
and assistant director of financial 
aid since 1979. 

According to Dean of Students 
George Marquette, the football 
coach search committee made its 
recommendation to Peterson in 
time for a decision by the presi- 
dent on February 10, 1986. 

Monos knew he was a finalist 
for the position, but when he 
didn't hear anything by 5:30 p.m. 
on the tenth, he assumed he did 
not get the job. When Peterson 
called later in the evening with 
the job offer, Monos said he was 
caught off-guard. 

Due to some questions on 
Monos' mind, it was not until two 
days later, in a meeting with 
Peterson, that he verbally ac- 
cepted the position. Monos of- 
ficially started at LVC on Mon- 
day, February 17, 1986, after 
finishing his duties at Ship- 

Monos' quickness in making a 
decision stemmed from the op- 
portunity offered to him to be 
head coach. He said that oppor- 
tunity doesn't come often, and he 
and his wife considered it a wise 
career move. 

Monos set up the following five 
goals for the new football 

•To establish self-respect, pride 
and dignity under the new foot- 
hall program from both mental 
and physical standpoints. 
•To get better each game through 
a Positive team attitude. 

•To play to earn the respect of 
LVC's opponents (which Monos 
said can only be done on the play- 
ing field). 

•To establish, in the long run, a 
good, consistent football 

•To become, in the long run, a 
legitimate contender in the 
Middle Atlantic Conference. 

Monos said he is "proud and 
excited" to take this position, ad- 
ding, "I am very much looking 
forward to the challenge ahead. ' ' 

He had already met with the 
present team and also each player 
individually for two reasons. 
First, Monos wanted to get to 
know each player before hearing 
anything about them — so his first 
meeting with each one was 

Second, Monos asked each 
player, "Do you want to play 
football at LVC? " and "Are you 
ready to commit to the football 
program?" He added that the 
team's commitment is very im- 
portant, and each player's 
response was very positive. 

The team will play with a 
' ' play-to- win ' ' attitude , accor- 
ding to Monos. The football staff 
and team hope this type of 
positive mental attitude about 
LVC football within the program 
will spread beyond those people 
actually involved in the program 
to LVC and surrounding 

But other key factors are also 
important to the program's suc- 
cess, according to Monos. For in- 
stance, there must be good com- 
munication between the coaches 
and the players — no matter what 
the subject matter. 

Also, the staff must increase 
the number of members in the 
program; Monos believes there is 
"safety in numbers." Hopefully

Founders Day Award 
Goes to Harsco CEO 

by Krista Bensinger 

LVC held its annual Founder's 
Day ceremony on Tuesday eve- 
ning in Miller Chapel. Clifford L. 
Jones, president of the Penn- 
sylvania Chamber of Commerce, 
spoke to a combined crowd of 
students, faculty, administrators, 
and community members. The 
topic of Jones' address was 
"The Corporation and the 

At this service, the college 
presents an annual award to a per- 
son who has shown unselfish and 
distinguished service to the 
community, said Dr. Howard 
Applegate, Vice President for 
Special Programs and Dean of 
Continuing Education. The award 
goes to someone who gets in- 
volved and assumes a respon- 
sibility. "Founder's Day is an 
event in which the college tries to 

recognize the committment of in- 
dividuals to the community," 
said Dr. Applegate. Today, it is 
not enough to be just a business 
executive, but people must get in- 
volved in community affairs and 
take a leadership role. 

This year's recipient for the 
award went to Jeffrey J. Burdge, 
Chairman and Chief Executive 
Officer of Harsco Corporation of 
Camp Hill. LVC chose Burdge, 
said Dr. Applegate, not only for 
his high corporate position, but 
also for his activities in a number 
of civic, charitable and educa- 
tional organizations. Burdge's 
community service includes 
directorships as the Polyclinic 
Medical Center, Hospital 
Research Foundation, Penn- 
sylvania State University, Good- 
will Industries, and the YMCA. 

Food Service 
Calls It Quits 

by Krista Bensinger 

After serving as LVC's 
Conference and Food Service 
Director for five years, Mr. 
David Michaels has resigned. He 
plans to work for a private in- 
dustry in Philadelphia, and from 
there he will open a new office in 
the Baltimore- Washington area. 
He said he will work mainly with 
fundraising for various corporate 

Two acting directors have 
replaced Michaels. Joanne 
Curran is the acting Director of 
Conferences, and Dee Miriello is 
the acting Director of Food Ser- 
vice. According to Mrs. Curran, 
both have worked in the two 
departments, and they will be 
able to "cross over and help each 
other out." Dr. Robert Riley, 
Vice President and Controller, 
said he feels confident with the 
acting directors' abilities. They 
are both able to perform ade- 
quately, and have his support. 

Mrs. Curran has worked with 
conferences as long as LVC has 
had this operation, said Dr. 
Riley. "She has attended 
seminars and training centers and 
has revealed to be very 
knowledgeable in these affairs," 
he said. 

Mrs. Mierello has had ex- 
perience in both conferences and 
food service, said Dr. Riley. Both 
acting directors have shown their 
leadership capability in the past, 
and Dr. Riley expressed his con- 
fidence in them. 

The two acting directors will be 
considered for a permanent posi- 
tion. "They will be given the op- 
portunity to demonstrate what 
they can do before we take other 
steps," said Dr. Riley. 

Dr. Riley also expressed ap- 
proval of LVC's past history of

Annville Vice 

by Pete Johansson 

I prefer to think of myself as a "Coffee Achiever." It has a nice 
ring to it, and I can count myself among such people as David Bowie 
and Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. 

The fact is, I'm an addict. I have enough of a backlog of caffeine 
in my system to kill an ordinary man and it seems to have no effect 
on me, except to turn mild stress into crisis. Couple that with a 
recent failed attempt to quit smoking and you come up with a young 
man in the prime of his life who's got the metabolism of a forty-year- 
old (at least that's what my doctor tells me). 

What is wrong with me? Do I have an addictive personality? Am 
I self-destructive? Do I simply have no spine? The answer (all of the 
above) is beside the point. One must stop searching for the motivating 
behavior, stop wading through the rationalizations, and quietly cease 
that which is harmful. And yet, I can't. 

I'm not alone, by the way. We all have dangerous habits that we 
take to extremes. For some of us it's smoking. For others it's 
overeating, chronic dieting, drinking, or even terminal self- 
righteousness (I've noticed an awful lot of the latter flying around). 
Any way you slice it, we are all headed down the path of self- 
destruction. As Beckett said, "Astride of a grave we are born." 

More cheer to come: It doesn't get any better than this. You're 
deluding yourself if you think that circumstances are going to get any 

better after you graduate. The Real World is just like college, except 
many of you will have wives and husbands hanging around to make 
things even worse (don't say I didn't warn you). You will still be 
afflicted by the stress of deadlines, lack of sleep, overwork, and 
monetary problems. Nothing changes. And if you tell me, "Well, 
at least I'll have more definite goals in post-collegiate life, more of 
an idea of where I'm headed," I will simply point you toward the 
author of Ecclesiastes, who wrote of the Real World, "All 
is vanity." 

So now would be a good time to cast aside bad habits. It would 
make the rest of your college life much more bearable, and brighten 
prospects for later life. You could be done with it once and for all, 
never look back, and behold a shining future on the horizon. 

But I'm not going to tell you that, because it would be hypocritical, 
and I am never hypocritical when someone can catch me at it. So 
instead, I ask you to look at the example I set. Use me as a constant, 
breathing reminder of what you someday may be if you don't watch 
out. Someday when you have kids, point to me and tell them, "That's 
what's going to happen to you if you don't eat your vegetables and 
brush your teeth after every meal." Let my failure ennoble others. 
Let my decadence be your uplifitng. 

Have a nice break. 


by Maria Montesano 

Writing an editorial for The Quad is not necessarily the easiest task 
in the world... and for this issue I was really stumped. 

I was thinking of writing something on the political scene of the 
world — or at least the U.S. — but I really don't understand a lot 
of what is going on there. And sports isn't my gig either. 

Then, I considered doing something on the horrible weather we've 
been through this semester, but that was pretty dull. . . . I could attack 
LVC apathy myself but... well... who cares anyway? 

Then I got an idea! Last issue I gave you a list of my choices of 
restaurants in the area... and everyone I talked to seemed to like the 
article. So, I decided to fall back on that idea and give you... my 
list of good books to read. After all, I am an English major and we 
are supposed to have some sort of authority on the subject, right?... 
Although I'm not sure why. 

Anyway, to write this article, I went through my collection of 
"books I own" and picked out some worthwhile reading for you. 
I just want to ask you to keep one thing in mind: All this is coming 
from the same girl who owns and has read the entire Nancy Drew 
collection... and is proud of it?! So, here goes... 

The Last of the Really Great Wangdoodles: Yes, that is actually the 
title of this book... so don't laugh! My fifth grade student teacher 
(from LVC) first read this book to me. . . and I still pull it out to read 
upon occasion. Written by Julie Andrews Edwards (yes, Julie "The 
Sound of Music" Andrews — wife of Blake Edwards), this is the 
most imaginative, magical and colorful book I have ever read! The 
fantasy pulls you right into the plot, and no matter how childish the 
title and subject matter may seem, don't be deceived! It is actually 

very intriguing and well worth your time. (Edwards has also written 
another beautiful book, Mandy, which is, however, probably more 
suitable for the adolescent female). 

My Heart's in Greenwich Village: This book, by Seon Manley, is 
perfect for the person who always longed to live in Greenwich Village 
and become a Bohemian. It is wonderfully detailed of how life really 
is, living on Bleeker Street... and even when you're done — you still 
want to live there! 

Hobgoblin: John Coyne's rendition of Dungeons and Dragons is ac- 
tually very appealing. Partially a love story for the story's main 
character, you will find yourself biting your nails in suspense by the 
ending chapters of this book. If you like D&D, you'll love this book, 
and if you can't stand D&D, you'll like it anyway. Take my word 
for it! 

There Must Be A Pony: You've heard of the movie, Some Kind of 
Hero? And you've certainly heard of A Chorus Line, right? Well, 
author of both of these, James Kirkwood, has a number of books out 
that deal with the truthful lives of various types of people in a 
fantastic way... There Must Be A Pony is my personal favorite of 
all his works, though, since we presented the stage version of this 
novel, with Kirkwood's help, when I was a junior in high school. 
The book deals with the lives of a Hollywood actress, her son and 
her lovers. You'll find this to be crazy at times, fun at others, and 
always touching. 

The Fan: Bob Randall's story was the idea behind the 1980's movie. 
I could have done without the movie, but Randall intrigued me in 
his book through his style of writing. He wrote the entire book as 
a series of letters passed between the book's main characters... and 
even with that limitation... he still manages to give you everything 
you want to know. Also Randall's original ending is much more

For those of you who are not 
keeping yourselves informed as 
you should be, this week's col- 
umn is meant to fill you in on 
what's going on and what's at 
stake in the Philippines. 

To start with, where are they, 
and what's going on? The Philip- 
pines is a large group of islands 
in the southwestern Pacific. They 
were a part of the Spanish empire 
until the Spanish-American war at 
the end of the last century. 
In that war, essentially one of 
American imperialism in re- 
sponse to our belief that it was 
our "manifest destiny" to expand 
and bring our great American ex- 
periment to greater areas, we beat 
the pants off this decayed and 
weak empire. As a result, 
America became a world power. 
In that "splendid little war" we 
picked up such niceties as Cuba, 
Puerto Rico and the Philippines. 
We let Cuba go independent after 
a short while, and set the Philip- 
pines on a course to independence 
in the forties. World War II 
delayed this, and as the Japanese 
took and then were driven out of 
the Philippines by MacArthur, a 
close relationship grew even 
closer. They saw us as their pro- 
tector and liberator, and when we 
set them independent, they re- 
mained loyal allies, and still are. 
In fact, English is the main 
language spoken there. 

Some 20 years ago, a man who 
claimed to be a war hero became 
President of the country. Ferdi- 
nand Marcos, however, grew 
very powerful, and proved Dr. 
Betty Geffen's adage that "Power 
corrupts, and absolute power cor- 
rupts absolutely." After 1 1 years 
of martial law, during which 
Marcos was a dictator backed by 
the armed forces and the U.S., 
the main goal of the United 
States has been to maintain the 
important naval bases that serve 
as our headquarters of operation 
in that part of the world. This re- 
mains the same today. 

Marcos, however, was not 
without opposition. Abroad in the 
United States the opposition 
leader, Benino Aquino, gathered 
support and built a resistance 
movement. At the same time, the 
communists were doing the same 
in the jungles. Today there is an 
active and strong communist in- 
surgency in the Philippines. 

About a year and a half ago. 
Aquino decided to return to his 
homeland to lead the fight against 
a weakening and ill Marcos. He 
wasn't as weak as Aquino had 
bargained for, for as he left the 
plane, he was gunned down, 
presumably by a goon squad

under Marcos' control. In his 
stead, Aquino's widow Corazon 
became opposition leader. When 
last fall Marcos called for an elec- 
tion to legitimize his weakening 
claims to the presidency this past 
month, Aquino ran a well run and 
aggressive campaign against him. 
The validity of the election, 
however, was questioned from 
the first call. Everyone knew that 
Marcos would make sure he won, 
by hook or by crook. By crook 
is for sure. When problems with 
fraud became apparent, Marcos 
threw the election to the National 
Assembly, which he controls. Of 
course, he was declared the 

In America, the administration 
knows that it must tread a very 
fine line. To support a corrupt 
and dictatorial Marcos would be 
undemocratic. But Marcos still 
controls whether or not those 
bases stay. If he were to stay in 
office, and yet be lashed out at by 
America would be most un- 
diplomatic, to put it mildly. 

As fraud became more and 
more apparent, it has appeared 
that the Administration has 
gradually supported Marcos less 
and Aquino more. As this is writ- 
ten, the military has revolted 
against Marcos under two main 
leaders, and a showdown is ap- 
parent. Aquino, with the Catholic 
Church behind her, is calling for 
a national and very effective pro- 
test of civil disobedience and 
work for nonviolent change. A 
civil war is on the horizon. And 
indeed, by the time this is printed, 
it may all have occured. 

The question is, though, what 
should the U.S. do? Well, I say 
we must support and look for a 
moderate and democratic solu- 
tion. Marcos is a tyrant, and we 
can't back the communists. 
Aquino is the solution. We must 
do what we failed to do in 
Nicaragua and Viet Nam. We 
must support the moderate and 
hope for such a solution. We 
can't support either the right or 
the left, because either way we'll 
he caught between a rock and a 
hard place. In Nicaragua and Viet 
Nam, we supported the right, and 
w hen they failed, the communists 
and leftists took over, and now 
w e are completely hated and 
scorned in those places. Our 
policy there failed miserably. In 
Ei Salvador, however, we backed 
a moderate President, Jose 
Napoleon Duarte, and that policy 
has worked. His moderate regime 
ha s gained legitimacy with the 
People, especially on the right, 
has weakened and eliminated 
m °st of the right wing and its 
te rrorist death squads, and the 
c °mmunist insurgency, despite 
setbacks, has failed to gain the 
u PPer hand. 

Letter: Legitimate Viewpoint 

To the Editor: 

The old adage certainly holds 
true, "There exist two kinds of 
people"; those with a social con- 
science and those that author the 
"Valley Viewpoint." If one ex- 
amines the contemporary Ameri- 
can class structure, he or she 
quickly comes to a profound 
realization of the "American 
Dream." Most recent statistics 
place 35 million of these 
dreamers living beneath the abject 
conditions of the poverty level. 
Our present administration has 
engineered a national debt greater 
than any in history; Americans 
are bearing the burden of paying 
over $140 billion annually in in- 
terest on this cumulative debt. We 
see intelligent students forced to 
leave this very institution for lack 
of financial opportunity. To quote 
our aforementioned author, 

The author establishes the pro- 
gressive income tax as a "moral 
outrage." Webster's definition of 
moral: "sanctioned by or 
operative on one's conscience on 
ethical judgement. ' ' Definition of 
outrage: "the anger and resent- 
ment aroused by injury or in- 
sult." Ethically, who should be 
more resentful? — who has ex- 
perienced more injury? Is it not 
a greater moral outrage that in a 
country of unsurpassed wealth, 
we find thousands living in the 
streets, incapable of finding 

employment, ex-veterans ex- 
ploited by the aggressive govern- 
ment which shipped them to dis- 
tant lands in a police action only 
to send them home and abandon 
them to the mercy of economic 
and psychological disaster. Can 
we, therefore, assume as our 
author has, that the greatest moral 
misconduct is to feed, shelter, 
and educate the starving, illiterate 
masses of our nation. 

To return the challenge of 
morality, we beg our author to 
take off his comfortable, cushion- 
ed, middle class blinders for one 
day and to visit any ghetto, 
village in Appalacia or any grate 
in North Philadelphia: to taste the 
food (and subsequent malnutri- 
tion) that the government has pro- 
vided "by stealing from the 
rich," to wear the shoddy 
clothing obtained in the same il- 
licit manner, to sleep in the cold, 
damp shelter that has taxed away 
that extra stick of makeup or 
fourth suit coat that the middle 
class American has "earned." 
It's time for America to take a 
step forward in truly providing 
for the social justice that she so 
long prided herself upon rather 
than retracting her support as Mr. 
Scott urges. 

To turn to the subject of incen- 
tive and nurturing of opportuni- 
ty, we again examine both the 
rich and the poor American. Has 
the average millionaire (over 

30% of whom inherited their en- 
tire wealth) earned the fact that he 
was born into the "equal oppor- 
tunity" of college and/or 
graduate education, of sufficient 
capital and contacts to start his 
financial future? Conversely, we 
can cite the justice and freedom 
of being born into a downtown 
slum in which no matter what 
grade is earned, higher education 
is a one-in-a-hundred shot; in 
which one particular library in an 
L.A. slum recently had 150 
volumes left while serving 15,000 
residents, in which, no matter the 
effort, a job paying more than 
minimum is a luxury. Realizing 
that these are extremes, it logical- 
ly follows that those on the upper 
end of the continuum possess 
distinctly greater opportunity to 
"earn their justly accrued in- 
come." We feel that the author, 
upon "thinking increasingly of 
his situation," would be more 
thankful for the opportunities he 
has, thus, inherited, instead of ar- 
rogantly rationalizing obvious in- 
equalities of wealth in contem- 
porary America. Economic 
bigotry "stinks." Not only is it 
a social "anathema," but it 
"robs" humanity. I would much 
rather invest in the human poten- 
tial of those who cannot afford the 
necessities of life, than add to the 
wealth of those who are already 
in a position capable of self- 
advancement and unappreciative 
of their already achieved pre- 


Despite the existence of a car- 
dinal principle of diplomacy that 
prohibits a mixture of religion 
and politics, since our protagonist 
has desecrated this obvious boun- 
dary, so we respond. Aside from 
the fact that Jesus declared, 
"Render unto Caesar the things 
which are Caesars; and unto God 
the things that are Gods," (Matt. 
22:21) it seems God, also, ad- 
vocates giving to fellow humans 
who have a need greater than 
one's own — "Love they 
neighbor as thyself." (Lev 19: 18) 
We must ask ourselves where our 
priorities are, for "Where your 
treasure is, there will your heart 
be also." (Matt 6:21) As John 
stated in I John 4:21 , He has com- 
manded us, "That he who loveth 
God, love his brother also." 

It's time that man stands up for 
fellow man. There are two 
"sure" values we must uphold: 
that all men are created equal 
(and women for those "libbers" 
reading), and the unity of all men 
exercising a social conscience. 
We recognize that the ideals 
espoused in this letter must, in 
order to become truly effective, 
be radically supported by each of 
us. It is a challenge, not just to 
the author of "Valley View- 
point" but to us all. But... "It's 
time something is done"!

When a newspaper writer 
reviews a musical or play per- 
formed by the local amateur 
theater group, he's taking his life 
in his hands. He can become the 
victim of anonymous hate mail, 
verbal assault by a cast member, 
or just simply wake up to find a 
rock thrown through his window. 
All this simply because he ex- 
pressed his own opinion about a 
performance. Or he can just 
avoid stepping on anybody's toes; 
this can be done by using "pet- 
ting" language like "the actors 
shined in their performance, ' ' or 
"the show was a delightful night 
of entertainment," for instance. 
And of course, if you can't find 
anything good to say, you can 
always give a plot summary fill- 
ed in with who played who. (I

Well, folks, I choose to express 
my own honest opinions on Alpha 
Psi Omega's recent presentation 
of Arsenic and Old Lace and take 

my chances. Please don't take this 
to mean I'm going to rake the 
show majorly, because I have lit- 
tle to rake. I'm just warning 
anyone queasy of character or 
theatrical maturity to stop 
reading, right now. Diehards, 
hold on. 

Since I had read and seen 
Arsenic and Old Lace prior to 
Alpha Psi Omega's presentation, 
I considered myself at a distinct 
advantage — I knew the plot and 
could focus directly on character 
portrayals, blocking, etc. without 
becoming too "distracted" by 
turns of the plot. And what I saw 
was a strong ensemble of actors 
that worked quite well together in 
addition to turning out many solid 
individual performances. 

Tina Bakowski and Kristi 
Cheyney portrayed somewhat of

And to both of their credits is 
their persistence in maintaining 
such small bits of characterization 
as the slow, strained pace they 
implemented walking across the 

Those seem like little insignifi- 
cant things, but it seems that 
director Ross Hoffman helped 
bring such intricate details 
together intentionally. And that's 
what makes this presentation of 
Arsenic so appealing. Hoffman, 
who previously directed Barefoot 
in the Park in Fall '84, redoubl- 
ed his efforts to put together a 
more solid show. Among these 
efforts was the painstaking 
building of the split-level set, one 
of the best-looking sets since 
Godspell. (Fortunately for the 
theater, LVC's dorm lounges 
have chairs and tables old enough 
to pass for characteristic 
"period" furniture.) 

Some other character observa- 
tions: Although audiences seem- 
ed to overwhelmingly applaud 
Kevin Biddle's protrayal of the 
trumpeting Teddy Brewster, I 
found his character almost too 
overpowering, and maybe a little 
bit annoying. His animation level, 
something vital to his character, 
peeked at many places (carrying 
out the hand motions of his 
charges up the stairs), but his 
overbearing tone seemed to tear 
down whatever sympathy his 
animation built up for him. The 
result is what I see as an incon- 
sistent character interpretation. 


cont. from p. 1 

A newcomer to the LVC stage, 
freshman Jennifer Lord was 
somewhat ineffectual as Elaine 
Harper. Although physically 
compatible as Mortimer's (Geoff 
Howson) fiancee, Lord delivered 
a cold, flat performance that 
never "got as high as the choir 
loft." In fact, the only real au- 
dience reaction she received was 
when she recited such lines as the 
previous one. Her only high point 
in the show was the scene where 
Elaine trembles at meeting Doug 
Nyce's threatening Jonathan 
Brewster. This is one of the few 
scenes where she emoted — in- 
stead of delivering half-baked 
speeches. Perhaps with a little 
more experience, Lord will be 
able to develop more than a one- 
dimensional character. 

If it seems I've been a bit too 
harsh, it's probably because I hate 
to see Hoffman's elaborate efforts 
and attention to detail undermin- 
ed by inconsistency and half- 
efforts. (I'm making a half-effort 
myself in not critiquing each and 
every character portrayal or 
every blocking maneuver, but 
space does not permit.) Hoffman 
has assembled a tight show where 
the cast works together rather 
than for themselves, and the per- 
formances reflect this tight 

And for those of you still 
breeding hostility, remember that 
this is only one opinion. As

Club Issues Challenge 
To Speculators 

The Business Club is sponsor- 
ing a Stock Market game, open 
to all LVC students. Each player 
will be given $10,000 to invest 
however he or she pleases, and 
the winner will be the one who 
finished with the most money. 

According to Dr. Thomas 
Follen, students interested in 
playing can contact any member 
of the Business Club to pick up 
a game kit, though tomorrow will 
be the last day to enter. One can 

buy a total of five items — stocks, 
bonds, mutual funds or futures — 
in any combination, using prices 
quoted in the Friday issues of The 
Wall Street Journal. Each week, 
players will have the opportunity 
to buy and sell stocks. 

Late in April, when the game 
ends, prizes of $50, $25 and $15 
will be given to those who come 
in first, second and third. LVC 
faculty are invited to play, but 
will be ineligible for prizes.

The college does utilize the ad-

what we are attempting to do."

Gary Reesor was voted the 
outstanding wrestler of the MAC 
tournament. The first LVC 
wrestler ever to receive this 
honor, Reesor won the 126- 
pound weight class by pinning all 
four of his opponents on the way 
to his victory in the finals. This 
is Reesor' s third MAC champion- 
ship and his record for this year 
stands at 37-1. 

Another LVC wrestler, Rich 
Kichman, boasts a record of 
37-1 . Kichman placed as runner- 
up in the 177-pound weight class 
at the MACs. Both Kichman and 
Reesor will compete at Nationals 
in Trenton, NJ this week. Both 
Coach Gerry Petrofes and these 
two wrestlers feel that they can 
place at the national meet. 

Jeff Sitler placed fourth at 
MACs, losing in overtime at the 
190-pound weight class. Sitler 
placed sixth last year. 

Kerry Meyer and Mike Rusen 
both missed placing by one bout, 
Meyer losing a disappointing 4-3 

Overall, the team placed fifth, 
railing the fourth place team by 
only half a point. 


The MAC Indoor Track Meet 
was held on Friday evening, 
February 21, at Widener. 
Freshman Cindy Sladek set two 
new LVC records as she placed 
second in both the mile and the 
two mile runs. Sladek ran to a 
photo-finish in the mile, as both 
she and the first place finisher 
recorded times of 5:32. In the two 
mile, Sladek ran a 12:01.4. 

Sue Yingst, another freshman, 
set a school record in the high 
jump (5 ' 0") as she placed fifth. 
Yingst also placed fifth in the 440 
yard run (1:11.3). 

John Hibshman had the best 
time in the 800 going into the 
meet, but was unable to compete 
because of illness. Carl Miller 
threw the shot for LVC (39' 
7!/ 2 "), while Ed Slagle ran the 
mile in 4:48.6. 


The men's team began this season 
with experienced players at point 
guard, off-guard, and small for- 
ward. Because of the inex- 
perience at the post positions, 
Coach Gordon Foster predicted 
that the team would improve as 
the post men gained experience 
and learned to work with the 

This improvement was evident 
in the team's first five wins after 
the holidays, which included a 
very impressive win over 
Moravian— who was leading the 
Southwest Division of the MAC 
and was nationally ranked. 

Other team and individual 
highlights of the season included 
the teams offensive average of 
73.7 points per game which put 
them at the top of the Southwest 
Division of the MAC. Pat Zlogar 
scored his 1000th point and end- 
ed up third in the Southwest Divi- 
sion in scoring, averaging 16.6 
points per game. Zlogar is the 
15th member of the 1000 Point 
Club at LVC. Len Bolinsky led 
the Divison in rebounding with a 
10.0 per game average, while 
Bolinsky and Don Hostetler 
finished in a tie for fifth in the 
Division for field goal percentage 
(.545). Zlogar, Jim Deer, and 
Hostetler finished second, third, 
and fourth in foul shooting with 
percentages of .902, .868, and 
.842, respectively. 

"The attitude of the players 
was super," says Coach Foster. 
"The credit for this goes to our 
seniors for their leadership in 
helping to bring our underclass- 
men along during the season." 

Foster feels that even though 
the team's record was 5-20, 
valuable experience was gained 
by many players. He says that 
with a successful recruiting year 
at some key positions, LVC could 
be a very competitive team next 


The women's team tallied a 
much-improved season this year. 
In a recent highlight for the team, 
Steph "Bean" Smith scored her 
1000th point.

Coach Tom Nelson. However,

Although there were 14

because of academic or personal

Methodists No Bar 
To Alcohol Policy 


by Scott Kirk 

Editor's Note: Last issue the 
following article was misprinted, 
due to an oversight when the issue 
was laid out. The following is that 
article, reprinted with apologies 
to author Scott Kirk. 

Recap: The Board of Trustees 
is currently considering changing 
the alcohol policy to one that 
would allow students 2 1 or over 
to drink on campus in their own 
rooms. Under consideration are 
proposed security increases, an 
alcohol education program and an 
appropriate sanctions system. 
Vice President for Student Affairs 
George R. Marquette speculated 
that the Board will approve or 
disapprove the proposal before 
the start of the next academic 
year. According to the timetable 
Marquette suggested, if the policy 
change is approved, the change 
would theoretically go into effect 
first semester of the 1986-87 
school year, provided all 
necessary provisions would be 

Rumor: The reason LVC 
doesn't allow alcohol on campus 
is because the Methodists control 
the college. The Board of 
Trustees will never seriously con- 

sider "legalizing' alcohol on 
campus because the Methodist 
church is holding them back. 

This is a difficult statement to 
respond to, as it is both false and 
true simultaneously. 

Chaplain John Abernathy 
Smith reviewed in discussion that 
although the College's religious 
roots formerly were with the 
United Brethren Church, the Col- 
lege has been affiliated with two 
conferences of the United 
Methodist Church since 1968. 
These two conferences include 
the Eastern Pennsylvania Con- 
ference and the Central Penn- 
sylvania Conference. 

That affiliation undoubtedly in- 
fluences the College in many 
areas; one of these areas is the 
composition of the Board of 
Trustees. According to Smith, 
about one half of the Trustees are 
elected or nominated by the two 
conferences; each conference 
elects or nominates an equal 
number of candidates. So to a 
large extent, the two conferences 
do have a voice in the administra- 
tion of the college. 

The United Methodist Church 
holds long-standing support of 
doctrine that prescribes 
"...abstinence from alcohol as a 
faithful witness. .. (Book of 
Resolutions, UMC, 1984)." That 
is the "official" position of the 
church, according to Smith. 

However, this has not 
prevented local colleges and 
universities that are Methodist- 
affiliated from instituting alcohol 
policies. According to Smith, 
Albright College in Reading, a 
United Methodist school, has a 
similar policy already in effect. 
"Albright doesn't try to control 
the behavior of those over 21," 
Smith commented. "There is no 
law set down (by the Methodists) 
that dictates you have to have this 
or that kind of alcohol policy. 

"In some sense the Methodists 
have been blamed too long for it 
(prohibiting alcohol)," he con- 
tinued. "If this is a church 
problem it's because it's a social 
problem. Society has a dilemma 
involving the use and abuse of 
alcohol that it hasn't resolved. 
Churches and colleges share in 
that dilemma," he said. 

Supporting Smith's thesis that 
the Methodists aren V to blame is 
the fact that the chairman of the 
Committee on Extra-Curricular 
Activities and Student Affairs, 
Dr. Dennis Williams, submitted 
the recommendation to amend the 
alcohol policy. Why is that little 
tidbit so important to Smith's 
case? Simply because Williams is 
a United Methodist Church pastor 
in the Eastern Pennsylvania 

Try that on for size. And watch 
for more to follow. 

ALCOA Foundation Grant 
Bringing Actors To Campus 

Lebanon Valley College will be 
"home" for Affiliate Artists 
Kathleen Gaffney and James 
Maxwell for two weeks each 
when they visit the Annville 
campus in March. The Affiliate 
Artists program, sponsored by 
the ALCOA Foundation in Pitts- 
burgh, was coordinated locally 
with ALCOA's Lebanon Works 
and LVC. 

"We're very pleased to spon- 
sor the Affiliate Artists pro- 
gram," said Larry Barber, 
ALCOA personnel and public 
relations assistant, "because this 
brings to the community some 
cultural artists not normally 
available to an area our size. 

While in residence, Gaffney 
and Maxwell will be available 
free to any local clubs, churches, 
schools, service groups or cor- 

porations who would like to have 
them for "Informances." 

During their visit, Gaffney and 
Maxwell will coach LVC stu- 
dents in basic dramatic skills and 
hold two public performances. 

Actress Kathleen Gaffney, who 
joined Affiliate Artists Inc. in 
1 98 1 , earned a vast array of per- 
forming credits through roles 
ranging from Lady Macbeth in 
the American Shakespeare 
Theatre's 1980 production of 
Macbeth to Faye in the national 
tour of Chapter Two. In 1973, 
Gaffney began a three-year 
association with the Center for 
Music, Drama and Art in Lake 
Placid, where she subsequently 
gained critical acclaim for her 
performances as Eleanor in The 
Lion in Winter, Amanda in The 
Glass Menagerie, and Tracy in 

The Philadelphia Story. Current- 
ly she plays Ann Murray in the 
daytime television series One Life 
to Live. 

Actor James Maxwell will be 
in residence at LVC March 1 8 to 
21, and 24 to 27. Maxwell has 
played a variety of roles including 
Laertes in Hamlet, Marlow in She 
Stoops to Conquer, and Austin in 
True West. With the Pennsylvania 
Stage Company in Allentown, 
Maxwell has won praise for his 
roles as Cratchit in A Christmas 
Carol, George Deever in All My 
Sons, Mark Dolson in Mass Ap- 
peal, and Antipholus of Syracuse 
in Comedy of Errors. Maxwell 
has studied at Michigan State 
University and The Pennsylvania 
State University.

believable than the unrealistic ending of the movie. So, skip the movie 
on VCR; read the book. 

Donahue: A much older book, this autobiography relates the story 
of everyone's favorite talk show host, Phil Donahue. I found this an 
interesting and witty account of different events from Donahue's life. 
He's just as talented on the page as he is on the twelve-inch screen. 

Free to Be, You and Me: This book, first introduced by Mario Thomas 
in 1974, is a wonderful collection of stories, poems, songs, dialogues 
and illustrations dealing with life from the adolescent point-of-view. 
It includes works by such celebrities as Shel Silverstein (whose com- 
plete works are worth your time also), Judy Blume, Dan Greenburg 
and Gloria Steinem. The book is described on its cover as "A dif- 
ferent kind of book for children and adults to enjoy together." And 
it is enjoyable. It takes you right back to your childhood! 

If you're interested in reading some of the classics, my top five choices 
include Kurt Vonnegut Jr.'s Breakfast of Champions, Antoine de 
Saint-Exupery's The Little Prince, F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great 
Gatsby, Ernest Hemingway's The Old Man and The Sea and George 
Orwell's Animal Farm. I could explain them to you briefly, but I 
had to figure them out for myself, and I'm going to let you do the 
same. After all, that's part of reading classics anyway. 

On a final note, I have one book I suggest you avoid, Stephen King's 
The Stand. Any book that takes three hundred pages to introduce you 
to the characters isn't worth my time. There are too many other books 
to spend that precious time on. 
Happy reading!! 

Eisenhauer Receives 
Hot Dog Frank" Award

Lebanon Valley College 
presented its first "Hot Dog 
Frank" Athletic Service Award 
to Dr. John H. Eisenhauer of 
Lebanon on Saturday, February 
15 during^ halftime of the LVC- 
F&M men's basketball game in 
Lynch Memorial Gymnasium. 

Presentation of the award was 
made by "Hot Dog Frank" 
Aftosmes, a friend to LVC 
students and athletes for many 
years. In 1985, Aftosmes was 

honored by the college for his 
personal contributions to the LVC 
athletic program. This year, the 
Athletics Booster Awards Com 
mittee instituted an award for in- 
dividuals who have given stronj 
support to the program. 

Eisenhauer, the award's first 
recipient, is a 1950 graduate of 
Lebanon Valley College. For 33 
years he has practiced dentistry in 
Lebanon and has volunteered his 
time to serve as team dentist for 
all LVC athletes.

If your' re a freshman or 
sophomore, there is a good 
chance that you can pick up a 
minor or two within the next year 
here at LVC. 

On Monday, March 17, 1986, 
the LVC Curriculum Committee 
passed a proposal to allow minors 
on campus, according to Acting 
Dean of the Faculty John D. 
Norton, III. 

Norton said the minors will 
range from 15-24 credits, but the 
actual set-up of minors will be left 
up to individual departments. 
That means each department that 
is interested in offering a minor 
must submit a proposal for 

Norton emphasized that this is 
strictly on a "department-by- 
department basis," and if a 
department chooses not to offer 
a minor, that is fine. He suspects, 
however, that most of the depart- 
ments will offer minors. 

One key advantage to the minor 
program is that it will allow an 
alternative choice to a double 
major. According to Norton, 
instead of concentrating in only 
two areas with a double major, 
students may be able to concen- 
trate in three (or more) areas 
without majoring in three 
separate areas. He noted, how- 
ler, that there will probably be 
a limit on the maximum number 
°f minors each student will be 
allowed to take. That limit has not 
°een set. 

One department hoping to offer 
a minor is the English Depart- 
ment. According to Department 
Chairman and Professor of 
English Arthur L. Ford, the 
English Department has discuss- 
ed the curriculum of an 
tn glish/Communications minor 
at several meetings, but no deci- 

sion has yet been made. He said 
the department must consider: 

• the courses that will be 

• the ratio of literature to 
communication courses that 
will be required 

• the number of credit hours 
that will be required 
(presently the department is 
talking about 18) 

Ford said, "We see this 
[minor] as a way that students can 
develop their communication 
skills beyond Freshman English 
...most employers require the 
ability to communicate [and this] 
will give students an edge on the 
job market." Courses taken in a 
minor will also count towards 
general requirements, according 
to Ford. 

LVC had a minor program 
about 20 years ago which was 
discontinued according to Nor- 
ton. Ford added that at that time 
minors were required, but due to 
the increasing workload and the 
temperament of the time, the 
school decided to drop minors. 

As for the new program, Nor- 
ton said it will probably begin in 
the spring semester of the 
1986-87 school year. 

A subcommittee of the Cur- 
riculum Committee proposed the 
minor program to the Curriculum 
Committee, and after approval, 
the proposal went on for approval 
by the faculty. According to Nor- 
ton, "the proposal will probably 
require board approval as well." 

Ford headed the Curriculum 
Committee subcommittee. Other 
members included James H. 
Broussard, associate professor of 
history, Robert C. Lau, professor 
of music, and Paul L. Wolf, pro- 
fessor of biology. According to 
Ford, the idea was originally pro- 
posed last year.

McGill Named VP and Dean of Faculty 

by Pete Johansson 

Dr. William McGill, cur- 
rently serving in the Division of 
Education Programs of the 
National Endowment for the 
Humanities, will become LVC's 
new Vice-President and Dean of 
the Faculty, effective July of this 
year. The position is currently 
held by Dr. John Norton, who 
has been serving as acting Dean 
since Richard Reed left last 

McGill holds a BA in History 
from Trinity College, Con- 
necticut, and received his MA 
and PhD from Harvard Univer- 
sity in 1958 and 1961, respec- 
tively. He has taught history at 
Western Maryland College, 
Alma College, Michigan, and at 
Washington and Jefferson Col- 

lege, where he also served as 
Dean of the College for three 
years. McGill was also ordained 
to the diaconate of the Episcopal 
Church in 1973, and then to the 
priesthood in 1974. He is cur- 
rently serving as an adjunct 
clergyman at St. Mark's Church, 
Washington, D.C. 

McGill has a varied interest in 
the arts. As well, as publishing a 
book on Maria Theresa, McGill 
has published scores of articles on 
history, religion and college life 
in publications such as American 
Historical Review, Christianity 
Today, Modern Drama, and 
University College Quarterly. 
McGill has had extensive acting 
experience in over thirty com- 
munity and summer theatre pro- 

ductions, and has developed a 
script for a one-man show based 
on the writings of C. S. Lewis, 
which he plans to perform. 

President Arthur Peterson, who 
selected McGill from a pool of 
eight finalists, said he felt that 
McGill has "a strong commit- 
ment to everything we stand for. 
He can address the problem of 
leadership as the college ex- 

Peterson also congratulated the 
Dean Search Committee, par- 
ticularly Dean of Students George 
Marquette and Dr. Donald 
Byrne, for the "unbelievable 
number of hours they put in on 
this labor of love. ' ' Peterson also 
said, "We are all indebted to Dr. 
Norton for his superb job in the

Just" Wars 

by Pete Johansson 

Everyone is breathing easier this week. Apparantly, we're not 
going to get into a war with Libya, at least not right now. This week, 
no one is worried about being drafted and having to go off and be 
killed in some God-forsaken desert. 

An interesting consequence of the events of last week is the fact 
that it got a lot of people talking about whether or not they would 
fight in Libya if called upon. Would a war with Libya have been 
"just"? For that matter, when can we call any war "just"? In answer, 
let's look at some of the wars this country has been involved in: 

The Revolutionary War: This was not a just war, it was simply 
a case of a group of extremists getting the upper hand. Things could 
have been handled better if our founding fathers had merely turned 
to a time-honored American trait, started by the Puritans: non-violent 
obnoxiousness. Had colonial Americans simply been less violent, and 
as obnoxious to Europeans as we are today, the British would have 
fled in disgust without all that bloodshed. 

War of 1812: This one was OK, because the British hit first. Not 
only that, but they armed the Indians, apparantly getting them to 
believe that life for Indians would be better under British rule (where 
did they think all these white men came from in the first place?). 

Mexican War: A border dispute is traditionally the feeblest 
excuse for a war. This one was especially repulsive considering it 
launched a 140-year tradition of consistent blundering of relations with 
South and Central America. 

Civil War: A gross misunderstanding. The southern states were 

simply taking Capitalism to its logical conclusion: when you own 
everything there is to own, start owning people. Northern Capitalists 
wouldn't benefit economically from this arrangement, so they said, 
"No." Southern Capitalists were sore losers, decided they didn't want 
to play any more, and fired on Fort Sumter. Northern Capitalists, 
unable to realize when a relationship was over, fought back, with a 
vengeance. Southern Capitalists, unaware of the fact that win or lose, 
they'd still have to play in the same back yard, escalated the violence. 
Northern Capitalists won and made the Southern Capitalists play fair. 

World War I: Semi-just. We were a little shaky on our motiva- 
tions but the ends may have justified the means. 

World War II: Our only undisputably just war. We were 
attacked, we defended ourselves, we saved the world from the Nazis. 
Vietnam: How would we have liked it if in the middle of our Civil 
War, thousands of Vietnamese "advisors" dropped in to aid our 
cause? People are still arguing over the reasons for this war, so we'll 
call it unjust. 

What does that leave us with today? Our prospects are the Middle 
East and Central America. The Middle East would most likely be 
an unjust conflict, especially when you consider that even Israel has 
been steadily lowering itself to the level of terrorism. Our only hope 
for a just war lies in Central America, and Nicaragua is your best 
bet. I agree wholeheartedly with President Reagan that the evil regime 
in Nicaragua must be stopped. If drafted to fight in Nicaragua, I would 
proudly go, eager to restore decency to Central America. I would 
be proud to be a Sandinista- 

Student Council Survey Results 

At the beginning of the spring 
semester, Resident Assistants 
distributed Student Council 
Surveys to all full-time resident 
and commuter students. 

At this time, Student Council 
would like to communicate the 
results of its survey and the 
actions taken by its officers. 

The survey responses were 
tabulated by Student Council on 
the College's SPSS program to 
insure secrecy. Each question of 
every department was processed 
separately. The categories of 
poor, fair, good, outstanding, and 
excellent were coded from 1 to 5 . 
In addition to these quantitative 
results, every departmental com- 
ment was copied verbatim and 


With these results, Student 
Council representatives 
distributed them to all depart- 
ments included in the survey. 
Each department received a copy 
of its quantitative results and a 
copy of the students' comments. 

Secondly, Student Council's 
President and Treasurer met with 
President Peterson to discuss the 
survey and point out positive and 
negative areas. The following 
day, the President of Student 
Council, Elizabeth Kost, reported 
the survey's results to the Board 
of Trustees, bringing to their 
attention various student con- 

Responding to the survey were 
300 students:

by Mark Scott 

This week's column is going to 
cause a storm of controversy 
because of its topic, so be 
forewarned. I'm writing on 
something called the Reagan 

The Reagan Doctrine is just the 
latest in a long series of foreign 
policy doctrines named after the 
Presidents who announced them 
It is like the Monroe, Truman, 
Nixon, and Carter Doctrines 
before it, except it's more radical. 

The Reagan Doctrine is the 
name that has been given to the 
policy of aiding Freedom 
Fighters involved in insurgencies 
against Communism worldwide. 
The objective is to actually roll 
back the red tide of the last ura- 
teen years. It is most apparantin 
the aid to the Contras in 
Nicaragua, but can also be ap- 
plied to the Mujahedin in 
Afghanistan and UNITA in 

It's controversial because it 
shatters the comfortable, passive 
and naive view that most 
Americans have that we shouldn't 
get involved in such things, 
especially when we are still 
afflicted with that deadly disease 
of defeatism called the Viet Nam 
Syndrome. Since we lost our first 
war in Viet Nam, we have been 
loathe to get involved beyond a 
point overseas. 

I'm not saying that we are or 
that we should get involved 
actively or otherwise in a foreign 
war. What I am saying is that 
where there are people fighting 
for their freedom against tyran- 
ny, America, as the guardian of 
freedom of the world, has a moral 
obligation to help them to win 
their own battles. 

We all were thrilled when the 
Philippine people stood up for 
democracy and ousted Marcos in 
a relatively bloodless coup. It was 
help from the United States that 
made this successful, to a great 
extent. We helped Aquino avoid 
civil war and pressured Marcos 
not to resort to blood. The situa- 
tion called for this, and it was ap- 
propriate. In other areas, like 
Nicaragua, we have not been so 
luck. The Sandinistas stole a 
revolution not unlike the Philip' 
pines and turned it into a com- 
munist insurgency. We now have 
an established Marxist govern- 
ment not only on the continent, 
but, despite Garry Trudeau's 
attempts at humor in Doonesbury< 
dangerously close to the United 
States, and menacing its neigh' 
bors. Mexico, whether y° u 
believe it or not, may soon be rip e

for revolution, as the ruling 
party there has become steeped in 
corruption, cannot meet the needs 
of its burgeoning population, and 
is facing economic collapse. This 
is scary. 

If our actions in the Phillipines 
were meant to aid democracy, 
though they did not demand the 
kind of help the Contras need, 
then we whould also help 
democracy in Nicaragua by 
aiding the forces fighting for 
freedom there, and in Afghan- 
istan and Angola as well. 

Congressman Jack Kemp has 
said, and rightly so, that the 
world looks to America as a 
"city on a hill", the sacred guar- 
dian of freedom. Just as we had 
to fight for our freedom 200 years 
ago, there are others today who 
are doing the same. In the spirit 
of our own revolution, we should 
help them. 

Congress dealt a setback to the 
Reagan Doctrine recently when 
they voted against Contra aid. But 
once again, Nicaraguan President 
Ortega showed that he has a 
worse sense of timing than / have, 
and sent his troops on a major 
offensive. Last year his trip to 
Moscow right after a similar vote 
caused the restoration of aid. The 
Senate is now dealing with it, and 
will have by the date this is 
printed. It is time for our Con- 
gressmen to get off their comfor- 
table but naive butts and aid those 
fighting for freedom. We have an 
obligation to freedom fighters, 
and indeed, to freedom itself. 

Unsung Heroes 

by Tracy Wenger 

LVC's concert choir marked 
two special events this spring. 
First of all, it was the choir's Fif- 
tieth Anniversary Tour. Second- 
ly, this was the choir's twenty- 
fifth year under the direction of 
Dr. Pierce Getz. 

The 49-member choir toured 
from March 5-11 this year 
throughout Pennsylvania, New 
Jersey, and Connecticut. After 
singing in various churches and 
two high schools, the choir 
returned to LVC to give its per- 
formance to an "appreciative and 
supportive home audience," ac- 
cording to Getz. Although the 
tour was not as wide as usual this 
year, the choir members still met 
a variety of new people as they 
shared their talents and enjoyed 
overnight accomodations with 
host families. 

According to Getz, this is the 
first year in the history of the 
choir tours that the entire concert 
has been performed a cappella. 
The concert always features 
sacred selections, either based on 
a theme or selected from a group 
of favorites. 

Getz says that the most 
memorable tour occured in 1973 
when the choir toured behind the 
iron curtain. He also says that he 
feels the first "serious recogni- 
tion" of the choir was in the 
mid-1960's, when the choir did a 
series of NBC broadcasts. Over 
several years, the choir recorded 
for NBC's "National Radio 
Pulpit" and "Great Choirs of 
America." The choir also per- 
formed in past years at the 
General Conference of the United 
Methodist Church in Atlanta and 
the Pageant of Peace at the 
lighting of the Christmas tree.

The choir has also performed at 
the state and national music 
association meetings. 

Getz was a member of the con- 
cert choir in his student days, the 
early 1950's. He says that the 
tour provides the opportunity for 
the choir to develop finesse, and 
it gives them the chance to share 
their hours of concentration and 
practice with listeners. "I am par- 
ticularly appreciative of this 
year's choir," says Getz. "They 
share my unhappiness whenever 
they know that they haven't done 
as well as they could have." Getz 
says that this year's choir has 
experienced a lot of growth and 
it has been a year of achievement 
and building. 

The choir tour is self- 
supporting, although the college 
underwrites it when necessary for 
special purchases like robes. The 
tour is planned by the business 
manager, who Getz says both he 
and the choir are very ap- 
preciative of. Robert Harnish 
served as the manager for fifteen 
years, and returned this year after 
Bob Unger had managed the tour 
for several years. 

"Although LVC is a very small 
school," says Getz, "because of 
the serious dedication of the stu- 
dent body, we have maintained 
high standards of excellence 
through the years, comparable to 
the efforts of much larger 
schools, including major music 

On March 13, the faculty voted 
unanimously to pass a resolution 
commending both the choir and 
Getz for their outstanding 
representation of LVC. They also 
commended Getz for his twenty- 
five years of service to the choir. 
Getz says that both he and the 
choir were very appreciative of 
this gesture. 

Majors Selected 

Dr. Robert Rose reported that 
nine L.V.C. instrumental music 
majors were selected to par- 
ticipate in the 39th annual Penn- 
sylvania Intercollegiate Band 
Festival held at Elizabethtown 
College, March 14-16. A total of 
140 students from schools 
throughout the state combined for 
the concert, held on March 16. 
The guest conductor was Dr. 
Ronald Thielman, director of 
bands at New Mexico State 
University in Las Cruces, New 
Mexico. L.V.C. students in- 
cluded Janell Trexler, flute; 
Jeanne Daly, Bryan Scollick, 
Deborah Fike, clarinet; Sara 
Bartlett, alto saxophone; John 
Copenhaver, Chris Enck, Rick 
Huffman, trumpet; and Clay 
Sattazahn, trombone. 

Quiz Bowl 

by Mark Scott 

If by some strange chance you 
thought there was an inordinate 
number of high school kids on 
campus the other Saturday, you 
weren't dreaming. On Saturday, 
March 22, Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege hosted its sixth annual Quiz 
Bowl. The Quiz Bowl is a com- 
petition for high school students. 
It covers just about every topic 
you can imagine, and isn't easy. 

According to Chaplain John 
Abernathy Smith, one of the 
major factors behind the event, it 
originated in a meeting with 
former Dean Richard Reed six 
years ago, in which the idea was 
brought up, and the decision was 
made to send out letters to gauge 
interest. Quite a few high schools 
throughout Central Pennsylvania 
responded, and the number con- 
tinues to grow with each passing 

The event is a faculty -student 
joint endeavor. Dr. Clay of the 
Sociology Department is the 
coordinator with Dr. Scott of 
Foreign Language and Chaplain 
Smith filling out much of the 
leadership. Literally hundreds of 
questions are written each year 
and the technical aspects are 

For the annual event, Media 
Services Director John Uhl has 
designed an electronic system of 
buzzers and lights which allows 
for easy answering and recogni- 
tion on the part of student players 

and faculty moderators. This is a 
major undertaking, considering 
that ten rounds are played 
simultaneously in the morning 
competition. Just in case anything 
goes wrong, though, the 
"Uhlco" team sets up trouble- 
shooting headquarters, as well as 
running the audio/visual ques- 
tions in the finals and semifinals. 

Each team usually takes the 
quiz bowl very seriously. Tryouts 
are held, and actual teams consist 
of more than the four students 
who make it to the actual rounds. 
They generally have a coach and 
practice heavily prior to the 

Students from Alpha Phi 
Omega and Gamma Sigma Sigma 
as well as others help the faculty 
man the competition by providing 
timers, scorekeepers, and in some 
cases, judges and moderators. 

This year, of the 60 teams who 
planned to attend, all but 2 com- 
peted in the three morning 
rounds, and then were seeded 
based on their performance, or 
eliminated. The top 24 seeds 
either played off once or twice to 
get to the semifinals. Cedar Crest 
High School from Lebanon 
County, runner up for the past 5 
years, finally achieved victory. 
Unfortunately though, Cedar 
Cliff High School from 
Cumberland County, winner for 
the same number of years, was 
not among the competing teams.

Baseball Improved 

by Ken Kuehn 

Baseball fever is running high 
at the Valley. The team has won 
its first three games, including a 
doubleheader sweep against 
Moravian, on March 22. 

"We're a much better team 
than last year, ' ' says manager Ed 
Spittle. The second year manager 
credits the fast start to three fac- 
tors: sound pitching, a fall prac- 
tice season, and a spring trip to 

"Pitching is our biggest area of 
improvement," remarks Spittle. 
Freshmen Joe Black and Tom 
Klukososki, along with transfer 
Andy Bender join Senior Gary 
Zimmerman to form a solid staff. 

Spittle believes - the fall 
workouts improved team morale 
as well as numbers. "The 
workouts generated interest," 
comments Coach Spittle. With a 
roster of 19, the Dutchmen have 
some depth, unlike previous 

While LVC students were 
home or vacationing over break, 
the team was in Florida for a 
week-long, spring training 
workout. "We played teams 
above us," says Spittle, "but that 
has helped our hitting." The 
Dutchmen have scored 23 runs in 
their first three games. 

Now that the team is off to a 
good start, Spittle wants it to stay 
that way. "Rich Bradley and 
Mark Sutovich are providing the 
kind of senior leadership we 

Manager Ed Spittle has manag- 
ed teams for 23 years. "I had one 
losing season out of 23, so I'm 
not used to losing. I told them (the 
team) that one of us has to change 
and it's not going to be me." 

After the Easter vacation, the 
team has a doubleheader against 
Muhlenberg, April 2, at home. 
On Saturday, April 5, the team 
hosts Franklin and Marshall for 
a doubleheader.

Finishes Fourth 

by Tracy Wenger 

The womens' basketball team 
finished its season with a record 
of nine wins and nine losses. 
Having a four win, six loss record 
in the MAC, the team finished 
fourth in the final conference 

The team set two records at the 
Johns Hopkins game on January 
12. The team scored 101 points 
in a single game, and Steph Smith 
scored 35 points and 15 field 
goals in one game. Smith also 
scored her 1000th career point 
against Allentown, ending the 
season with 1020 points. She was 
named MAC player of the week 
by the sports information direc- 
tors, and made the MAC South- 
west all-conference team. 

The team lost several games by 
only ten points, and the biggest 
loss margin was 20 points. The 
team was never "blown out" by 
even nationally ranked teams. 

Ann Cessna finished fourth in 
the MAC final statistics for field 
goal percentage and fifth for free 
throw percentage. 

Both Cessna and Smith will be 
returning next year, as will the 
remainder of the team with the 
exception of Dicksie Boehler. 

Coach Jodi Foster says, 
"Hopefully we will have a much 
larger team in number to add to 
the strength. I am expecting 
positive results in 1986-87." 

High Hopes 
For Golf 

After a record of nine wins and 
ten losses last year, the LVC golf 
team is counting on seniors Scott I 
Pontz, Dan Rafferty, and Jo e 
Meyers to lead the team to a 
winning season. 

"We have a lot of interest this 
year," says Coach Gerry 
Petrofes. Twenty players went 
out for the team this season. This 
makes it tough to pick the starting 

Petrofes says he's looking at a 
couple of good freshmen. Tou^ 
Metzer, Fred Neiswinder, and 
Chris Patton are hoping to jo in 
the seniors.

At a recent faculty meeting, ihe 
structure for an academic leader- 
ship program proposed by the 
Leadership Steering Committee 
was passed. The first of the 
courses will be offered in the Fall 
of '86 semester. 

The structure for the leadership 
program falls into three areas. 
The first area involves a new 
General Education requirement in 
the form of the new course LC 
100: Theories and Application of 
Leadership, to be taken by all in- 
coming students in the freshman 
or sophomore class. The course 
is tentatively scheduled for next 
semester, with Dr. Bollinger and 
Mr. Thompson each teaching a 
section, although the course will 
not become a requirement until 
the fall of 1987. 

The second area is required for 
all recipients of Leadership 
Awards. The first part is the 
course LC 1 1: Theories and Ap- 
plications of Leadership Pro- 
cesses, which Leadership Award 
Students will take in lieu of LC 
100- Dr. Hanes will be teaching 
a section of this course next 
semester, which will be required 
for Leadership Award students in 
th e class of 1990. Honors 
students who are also Leadership 
Award students may substitute

!es program,. 
Additionally, all Leadership 
w ard students must take 
^hgion 222: Christian Ethics or 
^ilosophy 220, except for 

Honors students who will be tak- 
ing HC 203: Human existence 
and Transcendence. All Award 
students must also take LC 400: 
Advanced Leadership Studies (or 
the Honor's Seminar, for Honors 
students), which will be taken in 
the senior year. Finally, all 
Award students will take LC 490: 
Leadership Internship or In- 
dependent Study, in either their 
junior or senior year. 

The third part of the program 
is a concentration in leadership to 
be taken on a voluntary basis. It 
will be open to any student who 
has completed LC 100 and con- 
sists of a minimum of fifteen 
credits. While the program by no 
means constitutes a major, credit 
for the program will appear on a 
student's transcript, much in the 
same way that the Honors pro- 
gram is acknowledged. The pro- 
gram consists of the following: 

1. Communications. 3 credits. 
Choice of either En 210: 
Management Communications, 
or En 218: Oral Communica- 

2. Organizational Leadership. 
3 credits. One of the courses 
selected from the following. Mg 
330: Principles of Management, 
Psy 337: Organizational 
Psychology, or So 340: Group 
Structure and Dynamics. 

3. Ethics and Values. 3 
credits. LC 300: Seminar in 
Ethical Issues and Values in 

4. A new course in leadership. 
3 credits. LC 400: Advanced 
Leadership studies to be taken in 
the senior year by all students in 
the program. 

5. LC 490: Leadership Intern- 
ship or Independent Study. 
Minimum of 3 credits. The in- 
ternship or independent study is 
done in the junior or senior year. 

In a recent interview, Dr. John 
Norton, acting Dean of the Facul- 
ty, emphasized the need for such 
a program. "It is hoped that the 
program will broaden awareness 
of the world and the role students 
have in that world," he explain- 
ed. For this reason, Norton said,

The Spring Arts Committee 
plans for a bigger and better 
festival this year, said Barbara 
DeMoreland, festival coor- 
dinator. There will be a wide 
variety of activities that students 
and community members will be 
able to see and enjoy. This year's 
festival offers something for 

Friday is traditionally known as 
Children's Day. Area school 
children may enjoy games, a pup- 
pet show, and a movie. The 
Alumni Chorale Concert, under 
the direction of Pierce Getz, will 
open the festival on Friday night, 
said Cheryl Weichsel, Student 
Affairs Director. 

Saturday and Sunday offer two 
full days of activities, demonstra- 
tions, and events. Some include 
a crafts demonstration in German 
wood painting, poetry readings, 
a modern dance presentation, and 
a variety of musical groups. 

For the music lover, the 
festival offers virtually every type 
of musical ensemble, from jazz to 
rock to the more classical type. 
Performances will range from 
LVC groups such as Wind 
Ensemble, Concert Choir, Or- 
chestra, and Jazz Band to H.I.S. 
and Apostle Christian Rock 
groups to a Q106 DJ. 

Students may enjoy dinner out- 
side in the social quad on Satur- 
day, said Weichsel. Jim Cook, a 
DJ from Q106, will provide the 
entertainment by playing your 
favorite tunes. In the evening, he 
will be in the Underground. 

Also geared to students is a 
group called Just Comedy. They 
will perform an act on Sunday at 
4 p.m. called "An Adventure." 
The group comes to the commit- 
tee highly recommended, said 

For the dance enthusiast, there 
will be a wide variety of different 
dance groups. The groups include 
belly dancers, folk dancing, 
mime, ballet, and modern dance, 
said Tara Thomas, a committee 

Delicious food, an ever popular 
commodity at the festival, will be 
abundantly available. The delec- 
table food includes spaghetti, 
nachos, sno-cones, hot pretzels, 
fruit cups, chocolate cake, white 
chocolate mousse, fudge, 
strawberry pie, ice cream, and 
baked goods, said Thomas. 

The juried art show is a must 
for those who enjoy viewing 
visual art. Paintings, 
photographs, and prints have 
been evaluated by "prestigious 
judges" and the best will be 
shown in the West Dining Hall 
during the festival, said Thomas. 

A wide variety of high-quality 
crafts will be sold. "We screen 
them all so we get quality 
things," said Thoams. The com- 
mittee has asked all the craftsmen 
to send a picture of their work 
before they were assigned a spot 
at the festival. 

The Spring Arts Committee is 
making every possible effort to 
make this festival a success. They 
have emphasized PR and pub- 
licity to attract the public's 
attention. Last year over 50,000 
people attended the festival, said 
DeMoreland. This year the com- 
mittee would like to top this 

Since the campus is hidden 
away in Annville, the committee 
has tried to draw attention to it, 
said DeMoreland. The committee 
will place signs along the road 
and possibly hang helium 
balloons on some buildings.

p. 2 THE QUAD April 17, 1986 


by Pete Johansson 


The big idea behind a college education is educating ourselves. 
While it can be fun to think of our professors as tools we are using 
to attain this goal, ultimately it puts the responsibility on our own 
shoulders, something that can be a little frightening when we stop 
to think about it. Self-education is the idea behind many of the 
extracurricular groups on campus, from Student Council to the Biology 
Club to The Quad. We use these groups partially for social reasons, 
but also to supplement our classroom education in an environment 
that allows for a little more flexibility than we might otherwise get. 

Having made that rather lofty introduction, I'd like to address the 
theater community on campus. First of all, I'd like to make it clear 
that I am not calling into question the quality of shows in recent years. 
That has been adquate at worst, professional at best. Secondly, as 
a person who has had extensive experience in theater here and 
elsewhere, in acting, directing, and writing, I want to make it clear 
that I know what I'm talking about. Those points established, let's 
look at LVC's theater repertoire. 

If you're a big fan of Neil Simon and Cole Porter, then the LVC 
stage is the place for you. If not, you're stuck. Because for the past 
few years, the only kind of entertainment the theater community here 
has been offering is the kind of thing you'll find in community 
dinner theater: light, frivolous froth that demands little of its audience 
and less of its cast. It's the kind of theater that provides no food for 
thought and is soon forgotten by the audience. It's the kind of theater 
that teaches nothing, either to the people watching the production or 
to the people participating in it. 

Now there's nothing wrong with a show like that once in a while. 
It's good to hang your troubles on a ticket stub and let a good cast 
and crew entertain you for two hours. The problem is in getting four 
shows of this stuff a year and nothing else. The last time we had any 
shows of substance on this campus was two years ago when A Street- 
car Named Desire was produced, and a few one-act plays when they 
were still offered (I'm not counting Tina Bakowski's production of 
The Zoo Story, since that was not associated with any theatrical group). 
Since then, we've been handed nothing but fluff, and it's the kind 

of thing that wears thin quickly. 

What's so bad about that? Well, it violates an obligation that's as 
old as theater itself, one that's doubly important in college theater. 
It's the obligation that theater be entertaining and intellectually 
stimulating. When one is involved in college theater, especially at 
a small college, one is uniquely able and uniquely obligated to do 
shows that give the audience something to think about. Shows that 
show something of the human condition, something tragic, something 
wonderful. The kind of theater that doesn't fade away when one leaves 
one's seat, but lingers a lifetime. That's what students ought to be 
doing, or at least attempting in college theater. 

Not only do these shows benefit the audience, but the cast and direc- 
tor as well. When you act Shakespeare you learn something, not just 
about literature and acting, but about life. Not only that, but you are 
challenging yourself, and that is how the real triumphs of drama come 
about. When an audience sees a production of Shakespeare, or of 
Brecht, or Williams, or Aristophanes, or Miller, the audience is 
watching a performance that has forced the cast to dig down, both 
into the play and into themselves, and that is what real theater is about. 

I've heard the argument that plays like these lose money, and I don't 
believe it. Even if it were true, a theatrical group can afford to go 
in the hole for one production of the year (at minimum) when other 
plays can salvage the season. The idea isn't to make money, it's to 
provide quality theater. But frankly, I'm not that pessimistic about 
audiences here, and I think it's an insult to students and the local 
community to suggest that "loftier" plays won't attract crowds. 
Besides, how will you know until you've tried? 

So keep doing those shows, but at least put them in perspective 
by offering something else. Challenge yourselves, and give your 
audience something that they'll remember for a while. Have the guts 
to take a chance on a show that might look beyond your abilities. 
You might surprise yourselves and meet the challenge. I've seen 
enough campus shows to believe that we have the talent here to do 
something memorable. Show us what you're made of, folks, and we'll 
all be that much richer for it. 

Voicing Opinions 

by Tracy Wenger 

I hear a lot of people around campus with good ideas and 
suggestions for Lebanon Valley College, as well as a lot of people 
with complaints. Unfortunately, I have to say, I do not think that 
anyone is doing anything about his/her ideas, complaints, etc. I think 
too many of us are walking around muttering under our breath about 
things rather than actively doing something about them. We have to 
realize that if we do not speak up, no one is going to hear us or listen; 
if we do not go after what we want, we are certainly never going 
to get it! 

Perhaps some of us do not know how to go about voicing our 
opinions. Perhaps some of us are tired of going through "the proper 

channels" and not seeing any results. Maybe some of us are just too 
tired of fighting uphill battles and so have just decided to "sit back." 
But whatever the problem or however hard the struggle is, we have 
to keep thinking, voicing our opinions, and fighting for change! 

One avenue that I think has been successful in the past is voicing 
things in The Quad. When the Thanksgiving Festival was doomed 
and might have been cancelled, an editorial in The Quad brought the 
campus together and a solution was found. The Thanksgiving Festival 
continues. Similarly, when there was no leadership for the Spring 
Arts Festival and it seemed also to be "doomed," putting the issue

There is a cancer in the global 
environment. It is unsettling the 
entire world order for both super, 
powers, all their allies and 
satellites, and the entire third 
world as well. That cancer j s 
global terrorism, and the virus 
behind that cancer is named 
Moammar Qaddaffi, the mad dog 
of Africa. 

Call him what you like, Qad- 
daffi, Kadaffi, Khaddafy, Gad- 
daffi, or whatever four-letter 
word you can think of. He refuses 
to give an English translation for 
his name, so we are forced to 
phonetically spell his name 
however we can. Whatever the 
spelling, it spells trouble. 

Since even the President has 
established that he is a mad dog, 
maybe it would even be ap- 
propriate to call him what Steve 
Martin called his dog in the other- 
wise stupid movie, aptly titled 
"The Jerk." I'll let you figure 
that one out for yourself since it's 

We can easily establish why 
Qaddaffi is doing what he is do- 
ing. He and his nation are have- 
nots. They see the West as the 
haves, and they want their own 
piece of the pie. This is 
understandable. The thing is, 
though, that there are other ways 
of getting it besides resorting to 
a policy of state-supported 

Look at Saudi Arabia and pre- 
revolutionary Iran. These were 
once backward nations that took 
advantage of the West, not 
through violence, but through a 
resource that they had plenty of, 
oil. By selling oil, at, until recent 
slumps, utterly unreasonable 
prices, that the West was willing 
to pay out of necessity, the stan- 
dard of living, cultural, industrial 
and economic development of 
these countries was raised 
dramatically. While there are 
many people at the bottom of the 
totem pole who are probably still 
in poverty, the situation in these 
countries is certainly better than 
that in Libya. Cooperation, n°' 
war, with the West has benefit' 
ted them tremendously. Qaddaf- 
fi should take advantage of hi s 
great trading relations wi^ 
Western Europe and develop 
along the lines of these and other 
Arab nations. 

We all know what happen^

hands, and when he tried 
something, our defense machine 
had been so weakened, that it was 
a flop. Jimmy Carter succeeded 
only in driving me and the ma- 
jority of our generation right in- 
to the waiting arms of Grandpa 
Reagan and the GOP. 

You've no doubt heard the ex- 
pression, "Once bitten, then 
twice as shy." Well, the U.S. has 
recoiled from the Iran experience 
like a wounded animal, and is 
now taking action. The U.S. 
under Reagan has reacted swift- 
ly and decisively in dealing with 
this pissy little strongman whose 
mouth is bigger than his nation or 
his military. We've proven that 
on several occasions, in the Gulf 
of Sidra, and we proved it again 
Monday night. We have acted 
decisively in our strike against 
Libyan targets in retaliation for 
this flaky little barbarian's latest 
trick in Germany. 

But, I propose a simpler, more 
radical, but less costly, in terms 
of money and human life. If one 
human life is ultimately respon- 
sible for the loss of so many, then 
eliminate it. 

I am advocating and pushing 
for the assassination of Moammar 
Qaddaffi. The man is a menace. 
There is no evidence that I know 
of that there is anyone nearly as 
bad or as mad as he in Libya.

some mercenary do it, so that the 

Valley Viewpoint Strikes Again 

Dear Editor: 

As a student at Lebanon Valley 
College I am continually 
disgusted to see that The Quad 
column "Valley Viewpoint" is 
being used as a pulpit for Mark 
Scott's naive and often ill- 
informed conservative platform 
without any effort by the editors 
of The Quad to give a dissenting 
viewpoint. Mr. Scott's assertion 
that the Reagan Doctrine is an 
organized attempt to fulfill an 
"obligation to freedom fighters" 
is preposterous. It is rhetoric such 
as that, that has created such in- 
ternational fiascos as the deaths of 
the 260 Marines in Lebanon, and 
the continual rise of terrorism in 
the Middle East. The Reagan 
Doctrine is a farce, even top

the April 7th issue of Newsweek,

could be done, and carefully, too. 
Indeed, I believe it must be done. 
In purely economic terms it is the 
simplest and most effective 
means. Why remove the symp- 
tom without the cause. Let's 
eradicate the virus that is the 
cause of the disease. Qaddaffi

Graduates and Future Graduates 
Need help buying that car for your new career? 
Here's some help! 

One of the biggest problems of getting started after graduation is purchasing an 
affordable and dependable car. Having no credit history and no co-signer can put 
a quick halt to any plans made to purchase a car. Tim Ryan has the solution! 

If you are a graduate, or future graduate within one semester of graduation, and 
have a full time job, or a written guarantee of a full time job, you're in luck. This 
job you have or will have need not be in your field of study, however must be 
at least 40 hours per week, and if you haven't graduated yet, you'll need a letter 
from your school certifying that, you will indeed graduate. That's all you need! 

Now that you have met the qualifications, you're guaranteed a loan on a 
dependable and affordable car. You don't need a credit history nor a co-signer, 
j"st call me, Tim Ryan at 653-9687. If no answer, call 274-1461, and please ask 
f°r Tim Ryan. Hope I've helped you get a good start on your new career! 

grand strategy, but from an ad 
hoc impulse. 

The so called Reagan Doctrine 
is littered with hypocrisy. Mr. 
Scott attempts to establish that the 
objective of the Reagan Doctrine 
is to "roll back the red tide of the 
last umteen years." No where in 
the world has Mr. Reagan's 
foreign policy been successful in 
"rolling back the red tide." 
Afghanistan, Nicaragua, and 
Vietnam are classic examples of 
a growing Soviet presence, in 
spite of Mr. Reagan's rhetoric. 
This growing presence is a 
reaction to Mr. Reagan's 
dinosaur attitudes of a big stick 
foreign policy. Robert L. Berns- 
tein, chairman of the Fund for 
Free Expression, which sponsors 
the America's Watch, Helsinki 
Watch and Asia Watch, cites in 
his editorial in the New York 
Times ten examples where Mr. 

Reagan can actually show he acts 
in support of human rights. Mr. 
Reagan claims to oppose "tyran- 
ny in whatever form" yet he says 
nothing, about the millions of 
dollars in loans to the oppressive 
regime of Chile, the killings and 
tortures in Indonesia, the op- 
pressiveness of South Korea, the 
fraudulent election in Liberia, the 
continual human rights violations 
in El Salvador, the martial law in 
Pakistan, and the repulsive con- 
ditions in Turkey. It is not only 
naive but ludicrous to compare 
the events in the Phillipines to the 
situation in Nicaragua. 

One cannot help but find humor 
in people who believe that 
Nicaragua is going to invade the 
United States. Instead of using 
such a reactionary foreign policy, 
the current administration should 
address the root-cause of conflict. 
Addressing human rights abuses, 

and developing an economic 
policy which would stabilize 
poorer third world countries and 
prevent the conditions from 
arising which breed communist 
revolutions. Former President 
Carter, a better educated authori- 
ty on foreign policy then Jack 
Kemp, attempted to establish a 
policy on human rights and world 
peace. This policy made such ad- 
vancements as the Camp David 
Peace Accords. I can only hope 
that in the future world leaders 
will not reflect the mentality of 
Mark Scott, but heed the wisdom 
of John Kennedy when he said, 
"It is not the right of the United 
States to make the world safe for 
democracy, but to make the 
world safe for diversity."

Save the Quittie 

To the Editor: 

Should there be a 1987 Quit- 
tapahilla? That is the question 
which we are asking at the mo- 
ment. This year we began with a 
staff of 15 students, but by the 
end of the fall semester, only four 
remained. We gained four new 
members to bring our total to 
eight students this semester. 

This year we have added 8 
additional pages of color not to 
mention the 16 additional pages 
for a total of 192 pages. You ask 
why we did this? You're why. 
We thought the campus com- 
munity wants to remember the 
1985-86 academic year with more 
than memories. The yearbook is 
a history book, not just of the 
students, but on the entire Col- 
lege. It reflects all the events — 
academic, athletic, social, and 
national that occur during an 
academic year. We are attemp- 
ting to create a book that is con- 

temporary in design and that in- 
cludes stories to help you 
remember what actually happen- 
ed back in '86. It's more than a 
photo album. 

At the present time, we have to 
make a decision about next year. 
We need people for leadership 
positions as well as committed 
staff workers. Don't be scared, 
but as a staff, we have spent over 
200 hours this semester working 
on the book, for you. The pro- 
duction of a yearbook takes time, 
and it should because it is a 
quality item, a bound book. The 
only other bound books that you 
take with you when you leave 
LVC are your textobooks, and 
many times they are paperbacks 
which fall apart half way through 
the semester. 

Should there be a yearbook 
next year? We have to decide if 
the College should still continue 
producing a yearbook and if Stu- 
dent Council should give us 

money to produce one if no one 
is interested in helping. If we, as 
students, are not willing to work 
on it, the burden cannot rest on 
the shoulders of a few people; 
moreover, it is not the job or 
responsibility of the College staff, 
faculty, or administration to pro- 
duce this yearbook. Although it 
reflects the entire College com- 
munity, the yearbook exists for 
students and since its first edition 
in 1899 been produced by 

If you enjoy taking pictures, 
writing feature stories, using the 
word processor, or designing 
layouts, why not become a part 
of the staff for next year. If in- 
terested, leave a note under the 
door of the Yearbook office, 
which is located in the lower level 
of the College Center. The deci- 
sion to continue the yearbook lies 
with us, the students, and it is we 
who must make the decision.

My hat goes off to the cast, 
crew, pit orchestra, directors and 
producers of LVC's production 
of Cole Porter's "Anything 
Goes." The show moves 
beautifully from one scene to the 
next with few problems keeping 
the audience wondering what will 
happen next. 

"Anything Goes" is a musical 
with so many off-beat characters 
that just about anything is liable 

Anything Goes a Hit 

to happen. 

The story begins on a cruise 
boat about to set sail. Famous 
nightclub singer/star Reno 
Sweeney (Martha Bliss) and her 
four Angels make the passengers 
buzz with their rhinestone- 
studded satin and boas. Also, on 
board is public enemy number 
thirteen, Moonface Martin (Erik 
Enters) and his dizzy blonde 
sidekick, Bonnie (Lynlee Reed). 

They're waiting for public enemy 
number one to meet them. 

On the passenger list is Hope 
Harcourt (Karen Good), her 
mother, Mrs. Harcourt (Laura 
Pence) and Hope's fiance, Sir 
Evelyn Oakleigh (Chad Saylor.) 

Hope soon sees an old one 
night stand of hers on deck,

"America in Vietnam: 
The Role of the Press ' 

by Christopher Craig 

Friday, April the 4th, Dr. 
William Hammond, a PhD from 
Catholic University of America, 
came to Lebanon Valley College 
to lecture on "America in Viet- 
nam: the Role of the Press." Dr. 
Hammond had just completed the 
first of two volumes on the role 
of the press in the Vietnam War. 

Dr. Hammond began his lec- 
ture by discussing the status of 
governmental historians, and his 
work at the Center of Military 
History. Hammond maintained 
that the military encourages its 
historians to be completely un- 
biased in their work and not to 
"cover-up" any potentially 
damning material. Though the 
military might not make public all 
of its findings, they do incor- 
porate studies of past military 
failures before undergoing any 

new military actions. 

Dr. Hammond used his oc- 
cupational background as a star- 
ting point to assert that the role 
of the press in Vietnam did not 
have an adverse effect on the 
country, and it was not the cause 
of the American failure in 
southeast Asia. He asserted that, 
not only could the American 
government not control the press 
in the 20th century, but any at- 
tempt would destroy the ad- 
ministration's credibility abroad 
and at home. Throughout his lec- 
ture, Hammond argued that if the 
press did influence foreign policy 
decisions it was not the fault of 
the press, but the reluctance of the 
administration in power to risk a 
fall in public support. 

Dr. Hammond was also quick 
to point out the many incidences 
in which the press assisted the 

American military and coopera- 
ted with specific standards. Any 
attempt to censor the American 
press would prove to be fruitless 
because of the immense time and 
manpower that would be re- 
quired, argued Hammond. He 
continued to assert that one must 
also take in consideration the vast 
number of foreign journalists in 
Indochina at the time of the war. 

In the conclusion of his lecture, 
Hammond cited the basic need to 
have an uncensored press in a 
democracy. He also asserted that 
if in the future we are to avoid 
such atrocities as the "My Lai in- 
cident" and the "secret war" in 
Cambodia, a free press is vital. 
We are truly fortunate to have a 
free press in our society that ac- 
tually provides the legitimacy for 
the existence of our government 
of the people, Hammond said.

in The Quad helped to get some leadership. The Spring Arts Festival 

We must never forget the "power of the press;" however, we must 
also remember the strength of numbers. The Thanksgiving Festival 
would never have been continued if students did not band together 
to write letters, sign petitions, and make personal visits to ad- 
ministrators. When the Class of 1986 wanted to try having gradua- 
tion outside, as many other classes have wanted to, the students got 
together to solve the problem. The senior class officers joined the 
student council and the junior class officers to create a plan that pro- 
vided the ideas, money and manpower for the venture. They then met 
with the President, and now, graduation will be set up both inside 
and outside. 

The examples I have given are fairly large-scale changes. However, 
I believe that the same principles apply to smaller scale suggestions 
and complaints. First, you have to voice your opinion so that it is 
heard by the right people. Second, you have to band together with 
others who feel the way that you do. There is power in the press (The 
Quad) that people are not using, and there is strength in numbers. 

Why walk around muttering excellent, innovative ideas or angry 
complaints under your breath? Wouldn't it be much more satisfying 
to take the challenge, go after what you want, and see the results of 
your effort? (And remember, don't get discouraged. I never said it 
wouldn't be frustrating!)

"This year's committee has 
also tried to upgrade the quality 
of acts," said DeMoreland. Some 
people have been dissatisfied with 
the acts, so this committee has 
been more concerned with 
"quality control." 

Some funding is coming from 
the Pennsylvania Council of Art. 
They are giving the festival 
money on a trial basis. "Last year 
the festival did not get a grant 
because they (the council) thought 
is was just a campus event, ' ' said 
DeMoreland. This year the com- 
mittee proved that it is not just a 
student event, but a whole com- 
munity affair. Next year 
Demoreland hopes more money 
comes from the council. 

Some money is also coming 
from patrons, ads, booths, coke 
sales, T-shirt sales, student coun- 
cil, and other profits of the day, 
said DeMoreland. 

President Peterson has also 
allotted money to fund the 
festival, but this money has not 
been drawn on. DeMoreland said 
that they don't think they will 
need it because they are in a good 
financial position. She said it is 
comforting to know that the 
money is there if they need it. 

The college will pay for the 
costs of building, maintenance 
and grounds. They are donating 
the space for the festival. "We 
pay security and college center 
staff," said DeMoreland. 

This year's committee has also 
been concerned about a time fac- 
tor. They have started planning 
the festival at a late date after the 
concern that there might be no 
more festivals. 

This committee stepped in, 
headed by DeMoreland and are

This year the committee has 
felt a "more expressive interest

DeMoreland. Everyone has been 
supportive and has expressed an 
interest in the festival. She feels 
that this festival will be very suc- 
cessful and is hopeful that the

Dr. John P. Kearney, professor 
of English, will attend the 
National Endowment for the 
Humanities' (NEH) summer 
seminar at Princeton University 
under the direction of French 
scholar Victor Brombert, Depart- 
ment of Comparative Literature, 
Princeton University. 

The nationally sponsored 
seminar will run full time from 
mid-June to mid-August, 1986, 
focusing on the study of the theme 
of the prison symbol in modern 
society and literature. According 
to Kearney, Brombert has writ- 
ten a book entitled, The Roman- 
tic Prison, based on his own 
research of the subject. The 
seminar will cover such authors' 
works as Dickens, Dostoevski, 
Kafka, Camus and Cheever. 

Besides the group work, 
Kearney will work on his own 
project based on the theme of 
marriage and the family in 

The seminar is competitive, ac- 
cording to Kearney. The twelve 
members of the seminar were 
chosen on the basis of four 

•their interests in the seminar 
•their topics of independent study 
•their applications 
•their letters of recommendation 
Acting Dean of Faculty John D. 
Norton, III, noted that if Kearney 
was selected, he had earned the 

Kearney and Norton agreed 
that the seminar is a good chance 
to do research at a major research 
facility — something which is not 
available at LVC. For that reason 
the NEH aims seminars of this 
type at faculty members of small, 
four-year, undergraduate col- 
leges, such as LVC. 

Kearney will also receive a 
$3000 stipend to cover his ex- 
penses for the summer.

Kearney said he is very excited 
about the seminar adding, "It is 
a terrific challenge and an ex- 
cellent opportunity to immerse 
myself with scholars and 
teachers... to read and discuss 
books of mutual interest." Nor- 
ton added that he is glad to see 
Kearney involving himself in 
such an opportunity. 

The NEH sponsors similar 
seminars at various research in- 
stitutions in different fields of 
study each summer. In the past, 
Norton participated in a political 
theory seminar at Princeton, and 
Dr. D wight Page, associate pro- 
fessor of French and German, 
participated in two language 
seminars, also at Princeton. 


Sharon F. Clark, Denton, Md., 
has been appointed assistant pro- 
fessor in the department of 
management at Lebanon Valley 
College. The appointment is 
effective Aug. 27. 

Clark received a bachelor's 
degree from the University of 
Richmond and a law degree from 
the University of Richmond 
School of Law. 

Before coming to Lebanon 
Valley College, Clark was a tax 
attorney with the I.R.S. , an assis- 
tant professor at the Virginia 
Commonwealth University 
School of Business, an adjunct 
assistant professor at the Univer- 
sity of Richmond, and had a 
private practice in Richmond 
Virginia. Clark has been a guest 
speaker at several colleges, 
universities and community 

Clark will teach Business Law

The team lost to Western

The strength of the team seems

The losses suffered haven't 
been severe and they've played

it was felt that the first part of the 
program be made mandatory. 
Norton said, "It is important for 
the follower to recognize the 
dimensions of leadership and to 
be able to choose amongst right 
or wrong answers." 

A large part of the program is 
the internship or independent 
study. Norton stressed this since 
the program is not concerned 
simply with political leadership, 
but leadership in the arts and 
sciences as well, which can be of 
a different nature. The internship, 
for example, would not have to 
be of the kind that placed a stu- 
dent in a leadership position, but 
one in which the student would be 
able to observe leadership in his 
own field of study. An indepen- 
dent study in the sciences might 
be in doing research in a new area 
that might lead to further study. 

Norton is currently accepting 
applications from the faculty for 
the position of Director of the 
program, and plans to announce 
the person chosen by the end of 
the semester. A new Leadership 
Steering Committee will be form- 
ed, consisting of the Director of 
the program, the Dean of Facul- 
ty and the Dean of Students (ex 
officio), instructors in LC 
100/111, LC 300, and LC 400, 
and three student representatives, 
two of which must be Leadership 
Scholars. Norton said that any 
student interested in serving on 
the committee should contact him 
as soon as possible. 

The program, though admitted- 
ly subject to revision, is the 
culmination of a year of hard 
work by the Leadership Steering 
Committee. The following is their 
intended outcomes for the

As of last Tuesday, the Admis- 
sions Office had received 166 
paid deposits, which matches the 
number received by May 2 of last 
year. Dean of Admissions 
Gregory Stanson said that on this 
date last year, the Admissions 
Office had only received 138 
deposits, which leads him to 
believe that the class of 1990 will 
show a substantial increase in 

In recent years, most Middle 
Atlantic colleges and universities 
have suffered from declining 
enrollment, due to the decrease in 
the number of high school 
seniors. While this trend appears 
to be continuing nationally, it 
points to LVC getting an 
increased share of the market. 
Private schools such as LVC have 
tended to be the hardest hit, as the 

Enrollment Numbers 
Up From Last Year 

costs of a private education are 
higher than at state schools. 

Stanson reported a significant 
increase in resident men. As of 
last Tuesday, 78 men have sent 
in paid deposits. It took until May 
22 to match this number last year. 

Demographically, the college is 
still attracting students primarily 
from the Middle Atlantic States, 
although there will be students 
from other states, notably one 
from North Carolina. As of yet, 
there are no foreign students 
registered, although Stanson said 
that foreign students in past years 
have not been registered until late 
in the summer. 

Both SAT scores and class 
standings appear to be slightly 
higher than in past years. 
Although majors in the sciences, 
business, and computers will be 

traditionally strong, Stanson said 
that there are an unusual number 
of students who have not yet 
decided on a major. 

Stanson said that the increase in 
students is due largely to the 
Leadership Program. 215 high 
school students competed in 
January for Leadership Scholar- 
ships, and the incoming class 
reflects extensive experience in 
high school leadership positions. 
However, Stanson also noted that 
the faculty and students have been 
instrumental in the increase in 
enrollment, and commended both 
for "a first-rate job." 

Final enrollment of all new 
students last year came to 237. 
Stanson reported that " it is 
reasonable to expect a possible 
260 new students in the fall."

class of 1990. Stanson expects an increase in enrollment for next

Board To Vote On Alcohol Policy 

by Scott Kirk 

Vice President for Student 
Affairs George R. Marquette 
recently announced that the Board 
°f Trustees will vote on whether 
or not to allow alcohol on 
campus when they meet on May 
9 - Marquette noted that all pro- 
visions for the proposed policy 
change have been set down for 
the board's consideration, and 
tn at the decision will not be open 
for discussion after it is made. 

When asked what he felt were 
tne major opponents to board 
a Pproval, Marquette explained 
that 4 considerations might be 
critical : 1) Budget considerations; 

That roughtly 80% of the stu- 
dent body is not of legal age; 3) 
Ambiguous situations with dif- 

re nces in roommate ages and 
re sulting questions about how 

Resident Assistants could enforce 
such situations, and about how 
security could handle the overall 
situation; and 4) The possibility 
of liability claims made against 
the college or college personnel. 

Readers should recall that the 
budget considerations to which 
Marquette referred are in the 
form of increased expenditures in 
security and equipment. As with 
any budget consideration, 
Marquette explained that any ad- 
ditional budget allotments might 
be halted in accordance with the 
total budget figure. The expenses 
of a better commmunications 
system and additional personnel 
may or may not exceed the 
maximum amount of money 
available. However, he noted that 
these expenditures are "initial 

start-up costs" and would 
probably not carry over annually. 

Secondly, Marquette noted that 
the majority of LVC students are 
under 21, causing large appre- 
hensiveness towards instituting 
such a policy. Although he noted 
that he too was a bit apprehen- 
sive, Marquette announced that 
he planned to introduce an 
alcohol education program 
regardless of the outcome of the 
vote. "It's a part of our total 
society," he commented. "A lot 
of young people still don't have 
a thorough understanding." He 
said that the program was not 
meant to preach, but rather to 
educate. "Hopefully it will have 
some impact over the long haul," 
he said. 

A third consideration of the 

board is how to implement effec- 
tive enforcement, an area close- 
ly tied to budgetary considera- 
tions. Marquette commented that 
although a number of ambiguous 
situations still exist, he is hoping 
that stepped-up security provi- 
sions can offset any difficulties. 
"Our goal is to bring up our 
security set-up on campus up to 
a par with those colleges in 
Central Pennsylvania to which we 
compare. My proposal (to the 
board) considers the lowest 
security cost among these 

Supplementing these security 
increases is the proposed enforce- 
ment/sanctions system. Accor- 
ding to Marquette, the proposal 
includes a two-tiered approach. In 
the first tier, the RAs in their 

respective positions administer 
the policy as outlined in college 
regulations. They would continue 
to use the regular student judicial 
system to punish policy offen- 

In the second tier, the security 
force might enlist the help of resi- 
dent graduate assistant students 
who would live within the 
residence halls and help to make 
sure college policy is followed. 
Marquette noted that these pro- 
posed positions would be open to 
recent graduates of any institu- 
tion, in additon to LVC, with a 
background in "Resident Life 
Administration." These person- 
nel would file complaints direct- 
ly with Marquette, bypassing the 
channels through which RAs

If you just bought a new CD 
player, what would be the first 
three CD's you would buy, 
assuming all albums were avail- 
able on CD? Or, if you had to 
pick three albums to place in a 
time capsule, what would you 
choose? For your reading enter- 
tainment, some members of THE 
QUAD staff sat down and chose 
their three favorite albums of all 
time— just to get you think- 
ing.. .and agreeing or disagree- 
ing. We've written a short ex- 
planation of each of our choices 
just as rationalization for our- 
selves. (Please note: our choices 
are in no particular order.) 

Paul Baker: 

Central to the definition of rock 
is the notion of mass popular ap- 
peal. To be great, a rock album 
must not only be important in the 
sense that it breaks new ground, 
but must also have enduring 
popular appeal. A great album 
never becomes an artifact; when 
mine are worn out, I replace them 
because I still want to hear them. 

Dire Straits (Dire Straits, 
1978): 1978-79 was a watershed 
year for rock. Disco had prod- 
ded us out of a half-decade of 
complacency. Music videos were 
making their appearance in 
America, heralding the advent of 
MTV. Exciting new bands were 
playing new kinds of music, and 
the best of these was Dire Straits. 
The remarkable debut album pro- 
pelled Mark Knopfler & Co. to 
the position of leadership they 
still hold. 

The Dark Side of the Moon 
(Pink Floyd, 1973). Cerebral 
rock was nothing new in '73, but 
"Dark Side" gave it mass 
popular appeal and gave rock new 
credibility. Let's be honest: we 
all bought "Sgt. Pepper" and 
"Every Good Boy Deserves 
Favour" because we knew they 
were important, but how often do 
we listen to them today? The 
former was full of lyrical gib- 
berish; the latter is simply not 
pleasing to listen to. "Dark Side 
put it all together and therefore 

Born to Run (Bruce Springs 
teen, 1975): Mainstream rock 
reached its zenith with this 
album. If there is one song that 
embodies rock's musical and 
spiritual themes, the title cut is it- 
What's more, there's not a weak 
track on the album. Compel^ 
is the word. If the all- America" 
success story of Springsteen an 
the E Street Band has been 

overkilled since the release 


"Born in the USA" last year, 1 
is partly because it's true. Neat

Dear Editor, 

For eight months I've been 
picking up The Quad at the 
College Center whenever it was 
printed and reading it. All the 
columns are respectably written 
and prepared, but one in par- 
ticular always stands out in my 
mind. It is a regular part of the 
paper that presents the views of 
a student of this college who 
shows sheer ignorance and self- 
serving, bigotrous hatred every 
time he picks up a pen. The 
twisted view of the world that he 
presents is sickening at best. 

His world is one full of 
freedom-threatening evils that 
must be stamped out by the na- 
tion of the right. You guessed it, 
the United States of America. But 
let us not forget its qualities; 
strength, truth, loyalty, and 
FREEDOM! Freedom. . .yes 
we're all free, free to impose our 
will as a nation on others. Forget 
their freedoms!!! They have 
none! The only thing the third 
world is free to do is serve us. If 
they dare support another group 
or nation we'll label them a 
"cancer" or communist or any 
other smallminded label we can 
think of. Then wipe them off the 
face of the earth in the name of 
national security. Thus, the just, 
the mighty, the freedom fighters, 
the avengers of the world clean 
it of all its impurities, its diseases, 
its cancers. 

Think back a few years. It rings 
of a certain selfrighteously 
murderous movement in Ger- 
many around the 1930's, doesn't 
it? How very scary... 

Why am I writing this now? 
I've been upset with the articles 
published in this column all year 
but this last one was the clincher. 
After reading it I felt as if I had 
just finished reading a copy of 
Uein Kampf. The columnist 
writes of simple, cheap, easy 
ways of dealing with conflict. The 
article proposed that the U.S. 
secretly eliminate an adversary 
through murder while diverting 
the responsibility to someone 
el se. We might as well burn the 
U -S. Constitution, Bill of Rights 
and Declaration of Independence 
right now. What a cowardly and 
simpleminded "solution" he pro- 
Poses. What's more, it solves 
nothing. There will surely be 
^her leaders opposed to the U.S. 
Those killed will become martyrs 
of their causes. Shall we kill them 
a1 '- He calls it simple, effective, 
an d cheap. Kill our enemies so 
^ e can save money, time, and 
th °ngnt. Sad, isn't it? 

We aren't even brave enough

Integrating LVC 

Looking back over the past four years, I have to say that LVC has 
given me many things — a good education, help in "growing up," 
and last, but definitely not least, a lot of wonderful memories. For 
all this, I want to say "thank you very much" to everyone who touched 
my life. 

In return, I would like to leave something to LVC. If I could choose 
anything, I would try to give LVC a sense of the need for unity and 
integration that exists on campus. In my four years here, I have always 
felt that integration was one thing that was missing — integration 
between administrative offices, between academic departments, and 
between administration, faculty, and student groups. It is this integra- 
tion and unity which makes a cause, group, or organization strong 
and successful. Integration and unity carries a group through rough 

By integration, however, I do not just mean communication. Dur- 
ing my years here, I have heard many people talking to each other. 
Unfortunately, I have seen two problems with LVC's communica- 
tion. First, plenty of people are willing to talk, but very few people 
ware willing to actively listen and consider outside ideas. Second, 

too often the communication involves one department or office 
telling another how to do its job, rather than having both groups in- 
teract and share ideas both ways. Academic disciplines often overlap, 
and departments should not be narrowly concerned with teaching their 
own subjects only. 

I am not saying that integration is fast or easy. Integration means 
taking that extra five minutes to sit down and talk with people from 
other departments. It means picking up the phone to call other ad- 
ministrative offices to avoid duplication of effort. 

Most of all, integration means keeping an open mind, realizing that 
someone else may have ideas that are as good as or even better than 
your own. Integration means realizing that one good united effort is 
better than many half-planned individual efforts. This concept is 
especially important at a small school such as LVC, where the time 
and resources of the school and staff are limited. I truly believe that 
it is amazing what can be accomplished when a group works together. 

The concept of integration is much like that of a "team effort." 
It is always said that no single player alone can win the game of basket-

Looking Back 

Well, here it is! Your last issue of THE QUAD for the 1985-86 
school year... and my last editorial ever! 

This editorial is for all seniors— for having played your last 
college basketball game, or having attended your last choir rehear- 
sal, or having written your last college paper, or having written your 
last editorial. It's for all of us... because we've made it! 

Let's go back for a minute... to our very first weekend at LVC. 
(Can you remember back that far?) Remember our little boy-girl walk 
up to Kreiderheim? And Todd Burkhardt as the daughter in the 
little skit? And being told by your big brother or sister that if you 
absolutely had to drink— for God's sake, do it off campus!! 

We were all pretty young back then, weren't we? We were finally 
free from home, had no idea that college could be such an experience, 
or that the food could really get any worse. Naive, weren't we? 

But we are pretty grown up now, right? We are off to the real world 

to get a real job— and to become the leaders of our country— just what 
our parents feared all along! 

Well, times haven't been easy but there have been the good parts. 
Like Spring Arts weekends and underground (not as in The 
Underground, but underground) cocktail parties! Now, those were 
good times. 

And think about all the friends we've all made over our years at 
LV. Sure, some didn't work out. . .some transferred out, or graduated 
with the distance hurting the friendship— but some will last a lifetime! 
Those people will be there when we marry and have our first 
child... and maybe eventually we will lose touch— but we will never 

Remember all those things— those times and friends got us through 
when we didn't think we'd make it. Lucky, aren't we? 

On behalf of the entire THE QUAD staff— I'd like to congratulate 
everyone of us— WE'VE MADE IT!!!

Valley Viewpoint 

moved as to write me wonderful 
letters. Some of my closest 
friends have informed me in print 
that I have so social conscience. 
Chris Craig, LVC Young Demo 
President has been especially 
please with me as he is the pot 
calling the kettle black. My 
writing and my viewpoint is 
"often ill-informed." This is of 
course exactly what I would say 
of his assertions that "no where 
in the world has Mr. Reagan's 
foreign policy been successful in 
'rolling back the red tide'." He 
is, of course, forgetting Grenada, 
and if he doesn't believe that was 
red, he should read the State 
Department's Grenada 
Documents— it' s in the LVC 
library, thanks to the CR's. 

Further, as far as my platform 
being naive, as Chris states, I 
would say that no foreign policy 
can be as naive as what he cham- 
pioned in the last issue. Foreign 
Policy based on human rights 
alone did not benefit the interests 
of the United States, forestall the 

Sandinista revolution in Nicara- 
gua, and certainly didn't do a 
thing for us in Iran or Afghan- 
istan. The only real success I see 
was that it drove me, as I stated 
in the last issue, closer to the 
GOP. I was already wavering in 
response to my growing realiza- 
tion—one that I am sure of now, 
that the Democratic Party is 
ideologically BANKRUPT. Why 
else would the party now face an 
invasion of real neo-Fascists who 
I can't even come close to no 
matter how far right you may 
think I am. By this, of course, I 
mean the LaRouches. But I 

In foreign policy today, it is 
imperitive that we use a policy of 
Peace through Strength. That is 
the only thing that our adversaries 
understand, and to respond to the 
criticism I'm sure to get on the 
Libya column, a show of force is 
the only thing that the manic mad 
man Kaddaffi understands. He 
must be shown that a policy of 
state terrorism will cost him. 

Kind words or actions will not 
change him, and an idealistic 
solution is not the way out. In 
international relations there are 
harsh realities, and unfortunate- 
ly, when your adversary does not 
share the same ideals, moral 
code, or culture, as you, often, 
fear is the only argument you can 
make. If you can change this, I'd 
be happy to let you try. 

So, so long, Quad, so long 
LVC. I will be leaving to let the 
CR's, YD's, informed Quad 
readers and others fight it out 
among themselves. I hope I've 
been at least an interesting addi- 
tion to your education. Being Mr. 
Republican/Mr. Conservative on 
campus has had its ups and 
downs, but I wouldn't trade the 
past four years of my life for 
anything. LVC has indeed been 
good to me. If I don't see you 
personally in the future, I hope at 
least that you may see my name 
on the ballot in the voting booth . 
For now, farewell, dear old

usually handle complaints. 

Provisions within the proposed 
enforcement/sanctions system are 
also, according to Marquette, 
"much more stringent." Addi- 
tions to the present sanctions 
system would include $25 - $100 
fines for first offenses, and 
disciplinary probations/suspen- 
sions for second and third of- 
fenses. Offenses would also be 
cumulative for the 4-year dura- 
tion, as opposed to the present 
system where each year brings a 
"clean slate." 

Marquette commented that his 
enforcement/sanctions proposal's 
purpose "...was to come as close 
as we possibly can come to im- 
plementing a policy change. " He 
said students should realize that 
such a drastic change would re- 
quire "a no-nonsense sanctions 
system" that is more "restrictive 
and structured" and where "in- 
dividual responsibility is spelled 

A fourth board consideration 
concerns the legal aspects of im- 
plementing such a policy change. 
Marquette said that President 
Arthur Peterson brought this 
subject to the abrupt attention of 
the board during its February 

In his review of the legal issues 
involved with the proposed 
alcohol policy change, Peterson 
noted the difficulties the college 
faces in attempting to maintain 
the degree of supervision 
necessary to protect against 
liability: "... 'duty of care' is a 
particularly troublesome issue 
since judges and juries often have 
unrealistic expectations about a 
school's ability to supervise and 
control the conduct of high- 
spirited students who are re- 
garded as adults for most legal 

However, Peterson also 
voiced his support for respon- 
sibility should the change go into 
effect: "By acting knowledgeably 
and realistically we must provide 
strong evidence that we are mak- 
ing every effort to live up to our 
'duty of care' that is reasonably 
expected of us. " He called for 
rules governing student drinking 
to be realistic and enforced con- 
sistently. Otherwise, he claims, 
"more lenient rules that em- 
phasize students' personal 
responsibility require., 'our care' 
where situations threatening per- 
sonal injury or property damage 
are likely to increase substan- 

With these four considerations 
in mind, the board will have a lot 
to consider when they vote "yes' 
or "no" at their May 9th 

Does Marquette think the pro- 

cont. from p. 1 

posal will be approved? 

"I wouldn't bet a plug nickel 
either way," he commented. "I 
really have no sense of what will 
occur. It is my hope that it is 
changed. Of course, I mean 
changed with all the pieces in 
place. I think we have some 
chance of having a different ex- 
perience than some other institu- 
tions have had. I think we have 
approached it responsibly," he 

Peterson commented in his let- 
ter to the Board of Trustees that 
"Maintaining our present policy 
appears to many to be almost an- 
tithetical to that major value of 
higher education which holds that 
the college is a community of per- 
sons of integrity who make 
responsible choices based on ra- 
tional and critical analyses." 

He continued by saying that 
"Changing the policy to that 
under discussion appears to many 
to be going counter to the grow- 
ing concern over the social costs 
of alcohol abuse and to require a 
substantial increase in a very tight 
budget in order to assure that we 
meet our obligations of 'due care' 
with respect to student safety."

Several team members will 
compete in the MAC's to be held 
this Saturday. Coach Reed 
predicts strong showings at this 
event from junior John Hibshman 
in the 800 meter and the 1500, 
and from Kurjiaka, again in the 
javelin. Both have performed 
consistantly well throughout the 
season, according to Reed. 

Looking forward to next 
season, Reed predicts that the 
team could "almost triple in 
size" from this year's nine 
member squad. He stated that this 
projected increase would result 
from a possible improved athletic 
facility. Although he stressed that 
the project was still in "the 
hopeful stage," he indicated that 
a proposed capital campaign 
could produce "a large multi- 
purpose building for all types of 
recreational activities, and an all 
weather track with a rubberized 
surface." The track is crucial 
because, according to Reed, " 
Most other schools in our con- 
ference have all weather tracks." 
LVC must work against these 
schools, and their facilities, in the 
effort to recruit competitive 
runners to the college.

Music A Hit 
At Arts Festival 

by Krista Bensinger 

This year's Spring Arts Festival 
offered many activities for 
students, faculty, and the com- 
munity. The weather was fa- 
vorable and students enjoyed two 
full days of events. 

The musical events drew large 
crowds during the entire 
weekend. Both the wind Ensem- 
ble and the Concert choir per- 
formed for large crowds; Lutz 
Hall was full. Also, a rock group 
made up of LVC students, "To 
Be Announced," drew a large 
crowd on Saturday afternoon. 
"They were very good," said 
freshman Nadine Saada. 

A D.J. from Q106, Jim Cook, 
played popular songs during a 
student dinner in the social quad. 
This event seemed to be a student 
favorite. "The food was great," 
said junior Jami Jennings. The 
menu included fried chicken, 
macaroni salad, and brownies. 
Later in the evening, the D.J. 
again played in the Underground, 
which was more crowded than 
usual, said Nadine Saada. 

The food seemed to be a very 
popular item in this year's 
festival. Venders sold tacos, 
enchiladas, fresh fruit cups, 

spaghetti, opera fudge, funnel 
cakes, and just about any type of 
food available. The fresh fruit 
cups again appeared to be a 
favorite, after going over big last 

Even school children took ad- 
vantage of the events. They par- 
ticipated in games, songs, and 
even a juried art show during the 
weekend. On Friday evening an 
outdoor children's movie was 

The craftsmen, however, did 
not appear to draw the crowds 
that they did in the previous 
years. Various students com- 
mented on this decline in 
popularity. Junior Carol Thomp- 
son said that the number of crafts 
looked smaller than other years. 

Nevertheless, the Lebanon 
Valley Spring Arts Festival once 
again brought much culture to 
Annville. It also looks very good 
for the college because it allows 
many people to come to the cam- 
pus and see what LVC is all 
about. For students, it was a 
perfect diversion before final ex- 
ams begin. This year's Spring 
Arts Committee should be com- 
mended for a job well done!

LVC Nine Upends Albright 

by Julie Sealander 

The baseball team won Tues- 
day against Albright with a score 
f 10-8. The win came after two 
losses (9-7, 5-1) in a double 
header Sunday against Millers- 

"The attitude of the baseball 
team is better than it's been in a 
long time," said Coach Spittle. 
"We're hitting the ball better and 
we have the best pitching staff 
that LVC has seen in a while," 
he stated. 

Citing the strong starting 
pitching line-up of Joe Black, 
Tom Klukososki, Andy Bender 

and Gary Zimmerman as influen- 
tial in the team's development, 
Spittle said that the team "has 
turned a corner." He explained, 
"I think that the club's come far 
enough now that we're really not 
in awe of anyone. We go out 
there to play good baseball, and 
have a legitimate chance of 

Spittle also credited "overall 
good fielding" as a factor in the 
team's successes. However, he 
stated that "mental fatigue" 
resulting from a lack of depth and 
few substitutes, which required 

team members to play the same 
positions frequently, took its toll 
on players. 

Despite this, Spittle said that, 
"We have a chance at develop- 
ing a first class program here, and 
this will become evident year in 
and year out." 

This was the first year that the 
baseball team benefited from 
recruiting the season before, and 
Spittle stated that this was an 
element in their favor. He intends 
to recruit heavily for next season 
as well, and said, "We have 
some relly good prospects."

ball, football, hockey, or lacrosse. It takes a definitive team effort. 
This team analogy can be related to the points I have made about LVC. 
Just as no single player can win a game, neither can one administrative 
office or one academic department have enough achievement to make 
LVC successful. No single academic department can make a student 
educated — that's why this is a liberal arts college. 

The first thing that a coach screams at a team that begins to fail 
is "Talk to each other;" in the same way, communication is the key 
to integrated team work at LVC. (However, we cannot forget that 
key component — listening, really listening.) Just as a team must 
practice for hours every day, so must LVC practice. But the key is 
that the team members practice together — not individually. In 
addition to individual skill, they have to be able to work together or 
they will never win. This also relates to LVC.

Most important is the fact that team members must keep open minds. 
They must be willing to pass the ball, set a pick or a screen for another 
player, or only be credited with an assist instead of a goal. In the 
same way, people at LVC must be willing to allow someone with 
better ideas to go ahead, even helping them to get their ideas across, 
and possibly remaining in the background and not getting full credit. 

Team effort requires loyalty as well. The players must be loyal to 
the coach; however, we often forget that the coach must be loyal to 
the players. Loyalty goes up the ladder as well as down, and it must 
extend horizontally between team members as well. In the same way 
at LVC, offices and departments can expect in return only the amount 
of communciation, listening, open mindedness, and respect that they 
allow or give to others. 

One of the best ways to hold a team together or to even begin team 
unity is to say "Good job" when a member of the team makes a shot. 
Unfortunately, I do not hear that very much at LVC. When striving 
for integration and team effort, we cannot forget the pat on the back 
with the sincere, "Nice effort, good job," added on for good measure. 
Team members do not stay local very long if they only get to play 
in practice and sit on the bench through every game — never seeing 
a minute of action or hearing positive reinforcement. In the same way, 
loyalty and team effort at LVC must be fostered by making team 
members feel that they are competent, skilled and appreciated! 

As I said earlier, I have gotten a lot from LVC, but I do feel that 
integration is something the school definitely needs, if it is to be 
successful in the coming years. Integration and team work is needed 
both vertically and horizontally — at all levels. In addition, integra- 
tion, team work, and loyalty needs to be reciprocated, at and 
between all levels. Everyone has to give an effort, because "a house 
divided will surely fall."

likes them besides.

Only three? OK, here they are 
with no comment, in no particular

Abbey Road, by the Beatles. 
Court of the Crimson King, by 

King Crimson. 

Slow Hand, by Eric Clapton. 
Maria Montesano: 

Breakfast In America (Super- 
tramp): I had to pick this album. 
Everytime I get in a rut and want 
to listen to something old— but 
still good, I pull out Breakfast In 
America. With songs like the 
title song, Lord Is It Mine and 
Take The Long Way Home, the 
album reall hits the musical spot. 
Pink Floyd's The Wall (Pink 
Floyd): I realize this is an old 
standby, but it has to be one of 
the best! I've worn out the album 
jacket, memorized each and 
every word of the four sides and 
seen the movie three times for the 
music. Also, I've listened to the 
entire album three times straight 
through in one sitting (a very long 
sitting)— don't even ask why... 
Face Value (Phil Collins): Since 
Genesis and Phil Collins are my 
very favorites, I had to include at 
least one of the two in my list of 
three favorite albums. The toss up 
was between this and The Lamb 
Lies Down On Broadway. But 
with songs like The Roof Is 
Leaking, Tomorrow Never 
Knows, and Phil's a cappella ver- 
sion of Over The Rainbow, this 
had to be my choice!

Here are the three albums I

I play this one over and over and

old tunes. Ever try to throw a

Visit FRB 

Twenty-three students from 
Dr. Tom's Money and Banking 
class visited the Philadelphia 
Federal Reserve Bank, Philadel- 
phia, Pa. on April 15, 1986. In 
addition to a film presentation on 
the operation of the Federal 
Reserve Banking System, an 
economist from the Research 
Department presented a very in- 
formative and interesting talk on 
the interactions between the 
Federal Reserve Bank's monetary 
policies on the one hand and the 
fiscal policies of the Federal 
government, such as the Gramm- 
Rudman Act, the actions of the 
OPEC, and the cooperation 
among the central banks of 
major industrial countries on the 

The students were also guests 
of the Bank for lunch. In the 
afternoon, the students were 
treated to a guided tour of the 
Bank before returning to campus. 

This field trip was financed and 
supported by the Peoples National 
Bank of Lebanon. Mr. Harold 
Bucher, President of Peoples 
National Bank, is a member of 
the Board of Trustees of Lebanon 
Valley College.

policies of the U.S.!?? Right?... 
If that's your opinion, try to get 
to know other peoples, other 
cultures. There are millions of 
people out there just like us. No 
more important, yet certainly no 
less. Maybe if we got to know 
and respect each other we could 
live together without fear and 
hatred. Who knows, maybe 
peaceful means are the best way 
to achieve peaceful ends.
